Thought it was going to be a Good day
So I thought it was going to be a good day. I picked up a used bike yesterday, more of a vintage type bike but I think it will be fun to play around with, it is a mid 70's Murray Road bike with Shimano Eagle parts.
Did a tune up to it last night, adjusted brakes, derailuers, changed the saddle, etc. Took it out for a ride this morning to my LBS to pick up some parts for my MTB, was riding on the sidewalk (Really busy 4 lane road that I would have to cross if I wasn't on the sidewalk), and was only about 200 feet away from the start of the Bike Trail, when all of a sudden a guy pulls out to turn onto the main road and runs right into me, at least he was only doing a few mph, and I was doing about 10 mph so I wasn't going very fast, I was able to catch myself before falling into the main road, but twisted my ankle a little bit and got a few scrapes along my leg. Of course he took off and I didn't get his plate number. I am OK and the bike will be ok, it is built like a tank and weighs as much as one too lol.
