And For Today's Adventure...

If getting urinated on over the weekend wasn't enough, today I got hit by a car.

So, I am riding home from work on my bike in downtown Boston. I am in the bike lane. Some guy in a car decides to abruptly pull over to the side of the road. He signals *as* he is doing it. He totally cuts me off and forces me to hit the curb at speed. I somehow jump off the bike, land on me feet, stumble for a bit, and then fall. My handlebars shattered his passenger side rear view mirror. He gets out of the car and says "Didn't you see my signal? I didn't see you at all." I take my business card* out and hand it to him. I say, "Sir, this is my business card. May I have yours?" He looks at my card and his attitude quickly changes. He didn't say a word to me about the rear view mirror. Hah. Asshole.

Ah, the old hook manuever. Bet he sped up to get around you, then decided to throw on the blinker and pull over at the same time. Part of what makes road riding exciting and dangerous.

My other ride is a Cannondale Prophet.

You should have urinated on him.

it does seem that the peeing trick does get some attention...

shitty deal about getting hit. so you alright now? and i would assume he's going to be paying to fix any damage on your bike? damn careless people.

people always say they didn't even see you or whatever... well, i would hope not, or else then we're talking attempted murder.

sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...
