I'm a walking (no longer wheeling) road hazard
I was late to work today because when I was nearly a mile away from my hotel on my way to work my pedal fell off. I was making a left turn, thus I stopped in a lane of on-coming traffic. My bike couldn’t even make it a week! I tried to reattach the pedal, which screws into the pedal-shaft, but the threads were all eaten up. I had to walk back home and get a ride to work. Sigh. I was really sad that I couldn’t bike to work, but really happy that the cars didn’t get angry and run me over while I was scrambling to pick up my pedal and make it out of the road. Hopefully I’ll get my bike replaced later today.
