    As I started to move over the pipeline I hit the uphill pedal. Just tipped over and ejected me.
    Yes, the rocks were sharp.

    I did not edit the sound at all! The main curse was when I tweaked the knee. My right foot planted on the ground, jammed the knee and I continued tumbling. It was a long drop.

    No issues at all with the ribs.
    Ankle, knee, calf, thigh, elbow, and a dent in my helmet I did not notice until later.

    Man, hope you heal quickly. Thanks for posting that, goes to demonstrate that things can and do go wrong, sometimes on the most innocent looking obstacles.
