Be Careful Out There
I was hit by a van today while riding. He was making right turn and either didn't have his turn signal on or I missed seeing it. Next thing you know I'm plastered against it. Nothing serious. Lost a little skin and ribs are quite sore. It'll be a while before I ride hard again, but hope to be back on it this weekend. Just a little more cautious at intersections now, however. That's twice this year I've been boinked at intersections when I made bad assumptions about drivers' intentions. I've gotten off easy both times. I think of myself as a safe rider until something like this happens. I could be safer. It's a dangerous world when you're on a bike surrounded by vehicles. Be careful.
