Cycling a Bike on the Road
Been hit by cars more than I should think healthy. Like four, five times. Walked away from each. Well, four out of five of them. Still, pretty good odds. That outlier, hobbled a bit, got some great morphine, experienced a county hospital. So, not a total loss. Probably should reconsider the amount of time I spend on my bike. But, in all likelihood, I'll lean more to staying on two wheels than giving up. Statistically, accident numbers are low for the length I'm on the saddle. I feel free zipping through the city. I feel liberated. I feel fine. Of course, ask me when I get hit again. Whatever. I wear a helmet and observe road rules 99% of the time.
