In June I was riding carefully along a forest trail, but swerved to avoid broken glass.
My front tire slipped on a root, dropping me straight down a hill.
Before I could brake, my throat hit a large branch.
Now facing steeply downhill, that sudden impact raised the back wheel of my bike – sending me over the branch, pivoting around it on my throat.
I landed on my head and upper back, with my bike on top of me.
Don’t worry, the bike was fine!
