What's a wild experience you've had with a bicycle?

I used to live in an apartment complex. The complex sat on a big hill so there would be areas that were steeper than others. When I was around ten years old, some friends and I would take our bikes to the top of a grassy hill that nestled in between two apartment buildings and would routinely ride down the hill. I was comfortable doing so until... One day I rode down the hill and everything was going fine at first... Then I noticed I couldn't manage my speed!

So I looked down and saw that the chain had popped off. I was so panicked that I wasn't even looking where I was going. I was digging my heels into the ground trying to stop the bike from crashing but the bike was too tall for me. Long story short, I ended up hitting the one bump at the bottom of the hill and did what felt like a full front flip with the bike then landed right on the seat with my crotch. :') I played the pain off so the other kids wouldn't think I was a weakling... xD

What's your story?

  • Once I was riding my bike and I saw a path of fall leaves coming up on the flat road and thought nothing of it, the leaves made the road slippery and I crashed. I might've scratched something but otherwise walked away without any injuries. So I got back home and my mom is like what happened to you and I explained, she didn't believe the part about the leaves.

    I was like "I crashed because of the leaves!" "The leaves did this!", doesn't that sound silly? lol! True story though.

      I don't know why but when I was reading this it made me think of a possible movie with killer leaves. And nobody believes people when they say "It was the leaves!" ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'd pay to see that ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  • Went down a hill with a traffic light at the bottom. Its a pretty busy road with a bicycle lane next to it. I was in the lane going down picking up speed when my brake cable snapped so no more brakes. Got to the red light and was like "welp lady luck, lets see what happens" so i crossed the road at full speed and nearly got hit but got across safely. Had to wait till i was slowed down enough to get off and just sat there for a couple of minutes. Then walked the rest of the way.

  • O I have had many issues with my bikes๐Ÿ˜‚ I've fallen over a thousand times, I slipped because of snow or ice, my brakes just stopped working, some random parts fell off, I have been blown off my bike multiple times by the wind, I ran over my phone, almost killed a cat, dog and a kid๐Ÿ˜‚ I have been through all of it during my 14 years riding a bike...

  • I got my first job when I was 16 at a beach shop about 3 miles from my house so I rode my bike to work. I also had a cell phone that I'd talk on the whole way. I flipped my bike many times from not paying attention and always got all busted and bruised. Never really learned from it though.

  • I can barely ride a bike to begin with
    But my family made me join them in biking down a volcano in Hawaii (which was cool, but terrifying cuz I can't fucking ride a bike). Kept weaving in and out of the lane and almost into traffic and into the guard rail. hahahah
    Not really wild, but that's why I stay off bikes.

      Dang! I'm surprised I don't have any scars from how rough I used to be on bikes. My friends used to play games where we'd have to try to crash into one guy trying to get away. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…

  • I was gonna overtake a car between the lanes, but there was a pothole there so I lost palace. The handlebar was shaking the pike started to shake but somehow managed to put a feet down. And my bike just took the rest of the control of itself and we got "separated. I still had some movement energy so just kept running between the cars for a few meters and my bike was just flying/bouncing away by it's own. Worked as a bike messenger so it was pretty normal that time.

      Yeah. I don't know why. Maybe I was more concerned about me not being able to ride my bike for the rest of that day

  • I left a bicycle at a museum unlocked for 4 hours and was shocked it wasnโ€˜t stolen. Usually I lock it up before my art sessions but it was a rush that day. In 406 all-time sessions, that was the only day I forgot to lock it up and hopefully the only.

  • At age 6 I was given my first bike without training wheels. I stupidly assumed, being 6 and all, that I was a master on two wheels and bolted down a very steep hill leading down my very quiet cul-de-sac; my friend was standing at the bottom and I couldn't figure out how to brake (again, 6 years old) so I crashed into him and rocketed over the handle bars - both of us were hurt and spooked but not majorly.

  • I once had a great bike ride around a lake when I was 17. Then I braked hard at the the top of some slope went flying over the handlebars lol. Ended up with a bloody left elbow n badly grazed hip lol. Shakily picked myself up n my bike n wheeled myself towards a nearby pub. Parked bike outside n hobbled inside n politely asked for some first aid n to use the telephone please. (my mobile was damaged lol). Rang home, asked mum to come get me she said she was too busy just then n it was a little ride from home. Fucking kidding me? I nearly killed myself on my bike, got blood flowing n she just flips me off like that? Damn! So after patching myself up, n drank down the glass of water the kindly bartender offered, i then had to ride myself home exhausted nhad a huge row about it all later lol. Fun times haha๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜Ž
