Well today I got hit by a car...yawn. The bent survived without a scratch, my body OTOH made a nice big dent in the back rightside of a fairly new Korean car. Passenger and driver (both female) get out and beg forgiveness....had it been a male driver I would have in2 psycho mode. (trust me..I know how). I was in a rush and just wrote it off as another driving hazzard. My left shoulder, arm and hip hurt re: what caused the dent, but my jaw hurts too, which confused me since my head didn't hit the car, I was also dizzy for a few hours, but that went away....maybe it was the sudden jolt of coming to a dead stop suddenly. What caused the accident was the woman doing a U-Turn on a narrow street and she ran out of street and threw the car in reverse to try the turn again just as I rode passed the back of her car. Odd feeling getting whacked from the side, usually I just get hit from the front or rear. This is also the 1st time everyone seemed more concerned about how I was doing...usually people are asking about the bent or checking their car for damages while I'm laying on the road and being ignored. I am an excellent cyclist surrounded by car drivers who are lost in space....ah the joys of urban riding in winter.
