hey folks, just a quick note to let everyone know that i got hit by a car last night as i was starting my evening ride... i won't go into details, but it looks like i was at fault. i was distracted by other cars doing stupid things (passing on the left while i was in the left lane trying to turn left) and wasn't paying attention where i should have been (up the road).
got checked out at the ER last night and it looks like i'm just a bit scraped and bruised, honestly i was pretty lucky. my team-issue bell sweep xc did it's job and now sports a pretty good crack. i was a bit worried about re-injuring my shoulder, since that's what hurt the most, but it looks like it's ok. i'll probably get an MRI to see if there's any ligament damage.
the wheels on my road bike are bent; the front topolino will probably need to be replaced completely, but the rear powertap wheel will just need to be rebuilt. i should be back on the bike in a week or so once the soreness goes down and we're sure my shoulder is ok.
(at least now i've had time now to get the wireless network set up correctly at the new apartment)
