After my ride and the ending of being run off the road, last night I am ordering my replacement lights and a bright jersey today. As I approached my home I noticed a car coming at me so I slowed to not cut in front of them. Looking back under my left arm I saw a Lincoln Town car approaching fast, with a truck behind it. I thought that they are not going to stop or even slow for me so I need to flip or fly. Fortunately I was in front of a lawn with no curb to hit. I unclipped my right foot and pulled off quickly, unceremoniously the front wheel washed out in soft sand, dumping me in the grass. Got up and watched the Town Car speed off. No injury what so ever, fortunately, and no harm to the bike. Thank God for the save.
Broad daylight, bright blue bike, hand signals used and no help to me at all. I didn't exist to them. All I could think of was the thread about bright, hi-vis clothing. I was wearing my 50+ jersey, guess I need more visible kit.
Not wanting an A&S argument about the driver or my actions, not much I could do different and the car/driver are long gone. Just thankful that I am okay.
