Bicycle Incident - A Brake failure

One day I had borrowed my friend Vinay’s bicycle on the way back from school. He had informed me that the brakes were a little loose and asked me to ride carefully. 

I was just learning to ride a cycle that time and as we continued down the road, suddenly I noticed that a speeding auto-rickshaw was heading down the same path, so to make way, I increased my speed just a bit, to my misfortune, and the cycle wouldn’t stop no matter what and kept accelerating down the hill. My friends kept looking at me ride down the road as I went zooming downhill.

Fortunately, that day, the roads were dug up to correct the optical fibre cables in the ground. I sped into the ditch, landing on the other side of the ditch, with the cycle inside the ditch. Since the ditch as a wide mud barrier, it kind of shielded the bike from scratch, and me from severe wounds.

I still remember the kind of thrill and panic I had on that day. Though I regret now for being so careless with my life, I am happy that I got to experience this event.

I later analyzed most of the options I could have taken on the way down.

On that day, because of the ongoing construction work on the side road, there was a lot of sand, I could have decided to land on the sand, but as most of you might have experienced, Sand can be dam slippery and I might not have made it.

Suppose the roads were not dug up on that day, I would have no way to stop myself from riding into the drainage channel on the other side of the road. Lucky me and thank God (^_^).

However, by the end of the year I got my own bicycle and had plenty of special experience which I will share some other time.
