There was a lot that happened this past week. Got back from a race. Did a group ride. Hit by a car. Wallowed in self-pity. Rode around in a speedo.
That's a fair summary. I don't wanna go too into detail on the bike accident, but suffice to say that I escaped with more than I could have hoped for from a carbike interaction at ~25mph.
I am mostly ok, although my helmet was demolished and some peripherals on my bike were damaged beyond the ability to repair. My body is mostly ok, though a week later I am dealing with an ass muscle that is providing some issues. I have not been able to work our much since then.
But to be able to sit here and type this and be mostly ok is a blessing. I do not believe it could have gone any better.
The ultimate moral of the story for this blog post is that if you don't wear a helmet when you ride a bike you are truly a moron. I feel sad for those you endanger, maybe not directly but certainly indirectly, by making that ridiculously stupid choice.
