I was out riding today and while doing a pedal up, my foot slipped off the pedal causing my shin to become victim. My question is, why is it ALWAYS my left shin that gets killed by the pedal and NEVER the right. I have been riding for a couple of months and my left shin has been hit pretty hard (no stitches) 3 or 4 times. I am left foot forward which I think probably has something to do with it. Have any of you guys had this same problem? Anyway, I ordered a pair of shinguards today so this hopefully will not happen again.
