Best Crash: Back in the day (1988) I rode my road bike to work. I was a busboy at a restaurant and had to work nights. I was riding home from work one night, the street lights were the only lights I had. I was hauling but down this hill at about 30 mph or so and came to a railroad crossing. I pulled my front tire over the first rail, and came down on the second. The next thing I know, I’m laying on the ground looking up at a street light. Did I have a helmet on? No. I wearily get to my feet to look for my bike and find it in two pieces. Thankfully, I was only two blocks from my house and was able to walk home. The front wheel in one hand, and the rest of the bike in the other. Bleeding profusely from my forehead, I telephoned a friend to have his mother come and clean me up before my mom came home. The bike’s down tube was bent in half, never to be fixed again. I ended up at the hospital getting 8 stiches to bring the gash in my forehead together.
