I've come off that way before a couple of times, usually if I'm on a road that slopes in both directions and I put my leg down automatically on the high side.Yesterday we went for a nice 30-odd mile tootle around our pleasantly flat county, stopping to drink coffee, eat cakes, watch planes take off and land, admire views and generally enjoy the lovely unseasonal weather.
My current bike's just a little too high for me so when I stopped on a camber and tried to put my foot down I missed the ground and fell off.
People kindly came running to untangle me from t'moke and help me up. No injuries apart from a grazed elbow and a suspicion that I may be a twit.
It happened outside a shop. I went in and told the staff they'd missed the fun, and they laughed and rushed off to look at the CCTV, the swines!
Did it once after I stopped after a junction and my front wheel just went onto a bodged repair in the tarmac that came to a small but quite high bulge, didn't click straight away that made me just high enough that my foot wouldn't go down, by which point I was past my centre of gravity and straight over.
