An eventful bike ride at Bouddi National Park.
It started out well and I was feeling good. I was approaching the turkey trail from the better side. The tracks were heaps of fun and I was feeling confident.
The first fall was when I stopped to check the steepest of the drop. I just started to slide and fell into the tree.
The second fall was abrupt when going over some tree roots. I just came to dead stop.
The crash was hard. I thought I was lucky I didn't hurt myself, then luckier still that I didn't damage the bike. I thought I was okay but the bike hit soft sand and wham I hit the rock.
The next event, was the flat tyre. That's two in the last two rides.
The next hit was towards the end. I thought I was fine on the concrete path when my right foot and pedal hit one of the concrete uprights. It hurt a bit but I was happy there was no damage to me or the bike.
Conclusion, I'm trying hard and pushing it or I'm getting sloppier. hmmm! food for thought.
