another year...

...another bike accident. Hit-and-run drivers = not cool. Helpful bystanders and bike helmets = thumbs up.

Holy crap! Are you all right?

Fucke! I hope you're ok!

haphazardmusings said...

Oh no! What is wrong w/ people? I know too many people who were hit by careless motorists. I'm glad you're ok, and that there were people to help.

Janice said...

Gah! Don't drivers know that hitting a cyclist is a serious issue! I am sorry you went through this again.

Oh noes! With everyone else, I hope you're okay.

Bardiac said...

EEP!

I'm glad to hear you got help, and am hoping you're not too hurt.

Take good care.

Ouch!

Dumbass drivers.

Hope you are o.k.

Hey all --

Thanks for your well-wishes. I'm fine-ish. I should be paste, but I have a few stitches, some pulled muscles, and a couple of other assorted owies. I'm a fortunate girl scholar.

And fortunate for all the give-a-damn I see here. Thank you.

Of course, the fact that I'm feeling better means I have no excuse to ditch my morning committee meeting, so I'm off!

Tiger Mom PhD said...

Oh my! I can't believe this isn't the first time this has happened to you. So glad you are ok.

Jonathan Jarrett said...

Argh! Best wishes for a speedy recovery and I hope his or her car breaks down irrecoverably somewhere embarrassing.

Riding your bike is another reason to keep up with the yoga. Strength and flexibility are enormously protective--think of Hermann Meier's infamous slalom wipeout, and how he walked away from it.

I hope you're not too sore. Hooray for Vitamin I!

Notorious Ph.D. said...

Thanks again for your support everyone. Being a bike commuter is always a tricky business, and even the safest riders are going to take a tumble now and then.

H'ann, you're absolutely right: If not for the yoga, my muscles would have been in their usual knotted-up state, and I'd probably be much the worse for wear right now.

Good luck on your recovery! I apologize on behalf of stupid drivers...
