Bike accident

Got hit by a car today while riding my bike where the Ohlone Greenway crosses Sacramento in North Berkeley (on my way home from school). I thought the car was stopping at the light, but she just kept on coming. I wasn't hurt badly -- just a fairly impressively scraped elbow -- but my bike's front wheel was mangled. So I walked my bike the mile or two to Missing Link and had them replace the front wheel while Shannon and I grabbed dinner at McDonald's. I've been meaning to start eating more healthily ... I guess I'll start tomorrow.

So now my bike is like new and I will be more cautious in the future. I must remember that cars don't see me.

Eek! I'm glad that you're okay, but that's scary! Take care of yourself.

Holy crap! I'm so glad you weren't more badly hurt. I don't know the intersection in question, obviously, but it doesn't sound like it was your fault. Definitely be super cautious, though! I think a lot of drivers don't know how to behave around cyclists. Was the driver apologetic and concerned, at least?

I'm glad you're okay! I hope the driver stopped, and is paying for the damage.
