Re: Hope the cyclist makes a full recovery! (nt)

I'm a cyclist and have been hit by a car but fortunately it wasn't bad, just totaled a $500 wheel. It's really difficult riding around cars, they never want to give you space and some feel that you don't belong on the streets anyway. We have to watch for people opening driver doors, coming out of parking lots, driveways, making turns or just changing lanes. I also ride a motorcycle but when I ride my radar is on high alert all the time.

I hope the guy was eventually ok, it really sucks when you bike to stay in shape and then get hurt while doing it.
