Stuntman And Lover Of Cheese

by Dan Bostonweeks


When I woke up this morning I thought it was raining enough for me not to ride. I looked again and it was fine at my house so I went out any way. I was at the stop sign at Sacramento and Harmon on my way to Rockridge. I was waiting for traffic on the far lanes to pass when a pickup came up behind me, decided not to stop at the stop sign, went around me, and clipped me with his extended mirror. It hit me on the left shoulder and I went over to the right. I was fine but furious so I just turned around an went back home (about half a mile). Because I fell over I didn’t get the guys plate. I’m glad it wasn’t more serious. I hope that’s the closest I ever get to a car hit while on a bike.
