Did 40 miles on Sunday and considering the rain/cold/fog was feeling just about OK until about 1/4 mile from home and my back wheel touched the white lines on the road, which were wet and bang! Back wheel slipped out from under me and I hit the road, pretty quickly. With your feet in cleats the only option is to put your hand out - luckily I had gloves on - and wait to hit the deck. The top edge of my thigh was first to hit. The top of my leg now resembles something from the elephant man - swollen and a nice shade of purple.
My hand, whilst initially more painful is thankfully back to normal.
Lesson learnt though, avoid white lines at all costs!
