I know I don’t really have to tell you guys, but it’s always a good PSA.
This is why my better half doesn’t want me to have another bike now that we have kids. I saw the immediate aftermath of a wreck this morning, bike in the middle of the road surrounded by parts, ailing rider on his side on the sidewalk, with people just standing around him. Fortunately he appeared to be pretty well-geared. It must have just happened, because the fire and sheriff stations are a block away and there were no official vehicles there yet. Spooky, man. I don’t know who was at fault, but it’s a busy 4-way intersection that’s 2 into 1 lane, with traffic heading east looking right into the sun so I’m guessing someone didn’t see the guy. Keep your eyes open and watch those mirrors, not everyone commutes in a cage.
