It’s not me. It’s you.

Or is it me?

Let me backtrack.

Biking has my main form of cardio for the past few weeks. It’s fun, it’s hard and totally baller.

I have been biking around for the past year.

I biked all over Europe. Amsterdam



and Switzerland




I biked in D.C!



And riding around with my friends


As much as I love biking, I have taken a few spills.


I fell in the middle of the street while biking in Amsterdam.

I fell while biking on the National Mall.

I fell while biking around a bend.

And yesterday I fell flat on my face as I was going around a couple walking their dog.

Yeah, it hurt.





I am still not sure if it’s me or the bike, but I think a break in every relationship is a good idea.



So I am going to hang up my helmet for a bit,

It’s been real.

Oh and if you do bike, always wear a helmet.

And I am pretty sure it’s not me.

  1. I have had the same experience with my bike, lots and lots of falls. This is the main reason I am not a Tri-athelete and just a runner.

    After bigger falls, I have taken breaks, which have been for the better, but I always get back on. Enjoy your break, and remember it will be just as easy as riding a bike when you get back on ;)

    Funny thing. I was actually thinking about doing a bike race, right before I fell. Hahaha, I guess it’s just not in the cards right now!

    Aw, I don’t think it’s you. After all, I’ve actually fallen off from my SPIN bike once. A SPIN bike! One that doesn’t move! (I’m pretty sure this one was my fault haha)

    I fall off my bike all of the time, usually in front of large groups of people. In fact, it is only because that I am on a forced ‘break’ from running that I have returned to biking after more than a year’s vacation.

    Hopefully your break from your bike leaves you refreshed and raring to go when you get back to it! I know that my time away from running always does.

      I am on a forced break from all exercise that causes me to be injured. So I walked 3 miles today. And I got attacked by bugs. NOTHING IS SAFE.

    Aww.. girl, feel better soon. Love your biking adventures! I am a biker/cyclist myself. I have a sister residing in Amsterdam. The cyclists rules EU roads :D

  6. Awww…maybe your legs just want to be walking for a bit and are rebelling on you.

    I’m getting sick of the treadmill (a little) and thought a bike would be a good idea until I remembered what a klutz I am (and how most Okie’s are horrible drivers and I’m scared of getting run over). I’ll stick to the treadmill til it gets cool enough to head back outside!

    I am the BIGGEST klutz ever and also an avid cyclist. Dispite putting on over 1000 miles on my bike ever summer for the past 10 years. I STILL fall here and there. The falls are usually more embarassing than painful, though : ) Take a break from the bike and come back to it with all the confidence you’ve got!

    I always wear a helmet, just like you advise, even if it wrecks my hair : ) I’d rather have wrecked hair, than a wrecked nogin. : )

      I rode without a helmet in D.C and Europe, they don’t wear any…. but when I bike here around the lake I always wear one, I know my track record!

    Sana- I love your adventurousness in all those different cities! My MIL just returned from a cycling trip in France where she fell into a ditch and broke her nose. She rocked big black sunglasses looking one part stylish and one part hiding two black eyes. I want to start biking but a little nervous about doing so in SF. You are my bicycle hero right now.

    • Sana says:

      I only bike around lakes! But yeah, I fall way too much! I am covered in bruises! I hope your MIL is ok!
