fell on my back on a pedal

Fell on my back right right onto a pedal. Bent the wheel rim out of
shape.

Knocked the wind out of me and also hurt a LOT. Still hurts a lot.
Probably will hurt all week.

I guess my feet slipped off the pedals during some kind of spinning
maneuver.

Note the pedal-pattern on the skin in the “ouch2” picture. This pattern
was inflicted right through the fabric of my T-shirt.

Re: fell on my back on a pedal

Ouch is right. I did something silly on an IW and fell similarly, but
luckily I was able to arch a bit more and didn’t get a bad scratch or
bruise. It’s lucky your pedals weren’t really nasty!

Ouch, but it’s a good thing you weren’t on 2 wheels. Look what happend to one of my mountainbike riding buddies yesterday when he landed on a rock!!!

Bad pedal!

Maybe you’ll have a cool scar.

I can’t wait to fit into some spine and chest armor.
