First bicycling injury

As mentioned a while back, I suffered my first bicycle injury on Friday while riding down Chambers Street in Manhattan. The worst part was that I had to just suck it up and hop back on the bike and keep riding - I had another 2 or 3 miles to go, including going over the bridge, with the raw wound on my leg, stinging every time my shorts slid against it. Sweet.

But now, I can wear it with some pride. My first war wound! I guess I've officially popped my biking cherry. Now I can get back to biking without worrying about how bad the first time will be. ;)

These photos were taken a few minutes ago, i.e., 4 days after the event. The bruising has actually spread out a lot more since then, so it looks worse than it is.

In other news, I forgot to post my pics from the US Open. Here's a link to the set, with some examples behind the cut: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ntang/sets/868449/
