I got doored today by a woman getting out of a cab. I was about 1 block away from my apartment, and my concentration was wandering to the tasks for the rest of my day (Hadoop World, etc.) Letting up for 1 second means danger. NYC is a terrible place to ride a bike. I was riding along at about 10…
Glad you’re ok for the most part. I rode my bike happily in both Philly and Richmond. New York just scared the crap out of me. My wife was hit by a van on her bike and survived luckily.
That’s the thing I’m scared of most. Well.. that and being hit full on. It’s horrible how the drivers and taxi patrons think that they have no responsibility for cyclists. Sorry to hear that happened but sounds like it could have been worse. Heal up.
I have a beautiful lovely wife, she is definitely my better half, love her a lot! *kisses*
