My tires lost all grip sending me into a slide

by ROAD iD Staff May 21, 2021

There I was, minding my own business on a solo ride at 8 a.m. With a nice tail wind pushing the speed envelope past 17 miles an hour and going into a quick right-hand turn with a nice lean in, when both tires lost all adhesion sending me into a full slide. I landed on my right shoulder, breaking my collarbone and shaving a few layers of flesh from right elbow, hip and knee. Crushed my iPod and shredded my almost brand new bike fashion ensemble!

Getting up immediately, shaking my left arm towards the heavens and cursing aloud. I felt short of air and decided to make haste with calling the numbers listed on my earlier version Road I.D. as there was no one around to do it for me.

UPDATE: I'm all mended now and back on the bike. And am also properly outfitted with my new version of the Elite Road ID.
