I joined the club
That is the "I've been hit by a car" club. I'm not going to go into detail. The circumstances are still fuzzy, and I walked away with only a scrape on my elbow and a gash on my hand. My bike is fine. I was riding the track bike. The front wheel will need to be trued and the bars were bent a little bit.
Essentially, this was an area of poor visibility. I was checking traffic over my shoulder while the driver was backing out. I had both lights going, and I think he backed out a bit too fast, but I could have avoided it had I not been checking traffic behind me. I saw him at the last second, tried to swerve, and took out one of his tail lights. He immediately stopped and made sure I was okay. I asked about his car, and he told me not to worry about it. My hand was bleeding, so the store we were in front of made me sit down and gave me gauze and bandages. This was something that could have happened at any time at this location, but I'm not really badly hurt. I was just a little agitated after the whole incident; not mad at the driver, just mad that I was in a wreck in the first place.
