Pedaling down the bike lane, a car pulled out and hit me. I saw her and was 100% sure she saw me. But she didn't. I've got some major muscle bruising but otherwise am fine.
I post this to remind you that you should never assume they see you. I was incredibly lucky today. I was under the bumper with the wheel coming at my head. The whole time I was telling myself she was going to stop anytime now.
What we do is incredibly dangerous, even if you're following all the laws. Look at this memorial of those in just one city who were not so lucky. And please don't take any chances.
