First of all I can't believe this has happened again. Very sad - our prayers are with all involved.

I just wanted to post a picture of a friends bike that was involved in the accident when a driver hit a group ride here in St Pete. My friend is lucky he is back riding on a loaner from a LBS. Take a look at what is left of his softride. Top right is/was the front wheel.

Wow. Speechless. It's amazing he lived - that bike looks
like it was squashed in a trash compactor.

I take it the idiot who was driving is back on the road too.
Sigh.

F all the cars and a holes driving them. Today I am going along and have right of way, at t intersection taxi at a stop sign proceeds to pull out in front of me and causes me to have to swerve out of the way and brake. I yell, driver brakes and then looks at me like who the f are you to yell at me. I am sick and tired of irresponsible people who speed and care nothing of others who inhabit this world.

I mean you can just tell he was an experienced cyclist by the equipment he chose to ride. Could equally have been any of us, my friends. Just makes you think when you see those photos, that's all.
