Feel for you! Hope that ankle heals fast, that can hurt pretty bad when you are trying to cover some territory on the bike...

That's okay, I dropped mine yesterday, twisting my ankle in the process.   I was trying to turn around in a friend's driveway which was on a hard slant had the whell cut to hard and as I started rolling over I went.  Too much weight way to fast to stop it cracked my right side plastic in two places ankle rolled when I tried to stop her.  I was laughing about it later but with three of his neighbors watching it was pretty embarrasing.  Scratched my helmet pretty good, cracked the plastic, found the knee pads and elbows pads in my pants and jacket actually helped.

Sorry to read that you fell but happy to read that ATGATT (All The Gear, All The Time) was helpful.  I keep putting on my overpants and armored jacket with the thought of never needing them.  Like bringing an umbrella means it won't rain.

Best wishes on a speedy ankle recovery.

Thanks, the ankle is doing much better.   And yeah ATGATT was really surprising at all of 2 mph.   
...and a good time was had by all.
