Hazards are part of cycling. A coworker and lifetime cyclist was commuting to work when someone opened their car door right as he was passing. It was not a pretty outcome. He was out from work for over a month.
Ever wake up and you’re just hungry? We’ll, yesterday was that day for me. I stretched and wandered over to my favorite clearing and started to browse in the grass. Out of nowhere a bicyclist came flying at me! You should have seen him! His tight yellow clothes made him look like a big banana! I was so shocked by his dress, I kinda froze, just staring at him. I snapped to and tried to bolt, but the nut job just aimed at me! He hit me and the banana went airborne… physics and all that. I booked it out of there! About 15 minutes later I came back and he was still there. He was a bit grouchy but eh, I’m not afraid of a big banana. I wasn’t going to let him ruin my day and was still hungry. I finished eating and then went to the berry patch on the next hill over.
When I was in high school, one of my teachers hit a deer while screaming down a hill on his bicycle. He missed a week of school, then came back with arm and shoulder in a cast, the full crutch from elbow to hip job, and his face all torn up. Looked bad!
