You are okay. I remember being young and fearless on a bike. Not any more.
Mountain biking can definitely be dangerous. I try to avoid any really tricky stuff, keep my speed under control and walk sections if needed. So it's frustrating these crashes keep occurring. Luckily they have all been at low speed so the forces involved are not great.
Yikes! My skills (and muscles) are weak enough I'll never consider clip-ins. If I don't have power to get up an incline I walk it.
Glad you landed in a soft spot!
The clip-ins have been a contributing factor in several spills. I'm not sure they are worth it.
Tom! Oh my god. I’m glad the only thing injured is pride.
I'm pretty good at injuring my pride.
