Interesting ride into the gig today...
A little Chrysler sedan did not stop at the red light, and that there was a no turn on red sign as well.
I tagged his driver door with the shifter and then, after coming to a near complete stop, toppled over.
Any damage you can fix with a good couple of pushes and pulls is really a "non-event". The guys at Trek Raleigh are just going to love me. :)
BTW - I don't ride with my fast acting regular soda in my bottle cage, but some things fell out of my outer section of my bag - Mountain Dew included. So I just through it into my cage to ride the 1/4 mile in.
No harm, no fowl. I am uninjured. Completely, uninjured.
Not upset about it at ALL actually. I am thankful to be unscathed, and that my bike is not too messed up.
I am not sure what the mindset of the person driving the car was... maybe someone he loved was in a critical situation in the ER, or maybe he was driving himself to receive emergency medical treatment.
No judgement. I hope his troubles are temporary and he finds relief and peace.
All in all, still a GREAT ride in.... weather was good this morning. Probably going to be raining on the way home. I brought my rain gear with me, so I am actually looking forward to it.
Riding is a gift.
