just so everyone knows, spire had a serious accident the other day. he has been working as a bike messenger all summer and, on one of the nastier bits of road in montreal -- the pine/park interchange -- he collided with another cyclist who burned a light on a crossing street.
spire has some serious bruising on his face, as well as fractures to his cheek and around his eye. he is in pain, and hasn't looked at himself in the mirror, but he's okay. he's recuperating at his family's country house in bromont.
he was, of course, wearing a helmet. one thing about spire is that he's a pretty safety conscious rider, even for a courier. probably saved his life.
