It’s a warm early summer day. The morning is bright and cloudless. A gentle breeze is blowing through the trees. You’re riding a challenging route today; a mix of flats and hills. But you feel great, and you’re going to set some personal records today. Even better, you’re on track for your upcoming charity century ride. The last song that you heard on the way to this ride is looping in your head.

Then you hit something lying on the road. A rock, a pothole, or a branch lying in the street, you didn’t see it. You were cruising along at nearly 20 miles per hour. Now you’re fighting to control your bike, and you’re quickly losing. Within seconds, you’re sprawled on the road, bruised, and battered. The cycling kit commemorating that tough charity ride last year is shredded. Your bike is lying a few feet away, after having bounced there. And your water bottle, headlight and everything in your jersey pockets is scattered across the road.
