Bump in the road
I have the distinct honor of being the first freshman to get in a bicycle accident this year. My old bike, which I couldn’t have possibly brought with me on the plane, was very good, but even if you squeezed the brakes till the handles broke off, it’d still take a few seconds to stop completely. I think my new bike has anti-lock brakes, because as soon as I pressed the handles, I went flying. So I ended up with a skinned shoulder and a sore neck. And a late appointment with my advisor.
