Sorry you crashed, but glad you and the bike weren't hurt any worse. I hope you make a full and speedy recovery.

Tonight in the dark (despite my headlight) I didn't realize that yesterday they completed the paving. So when I went to transition back to what had been the old pavement, I hit the edge of the new pavement. Front wheel washed out and I got sent flying at about 15 mph. Landed on my right upper chest/shoulder, and the right side of my head hit the pavement hard.
