Biking Tips of the Day: How to crash like a Pro

Kalongkong Hiker on Crashing SafelyLast night, I am running at a speed of 30 to 35KPH in Eastwood, Libis on a wet and gloomy night off to work riding my bike I found myself sliding on a bike crash when I attempted to do a gutter run to overtake a car on the right side but I managed react quick and not to hurt myself and miraculously unclip off to my pedals that real quick while sliding, ducking and rolling to stay safe like a Pro. My cyclocross’ rear mech and drop out was damaged and some scratches on my STI Brifters but I was able to pedal on a single speed setup and still make it on time to work.
