Today I rode 60 miles around south western Michigan. I took another rider with me, big mistake. He really knew the area better then me. Well he rode against traffic, no helmet, and stop signs did not exist. We rode from Indiana to New Buffalo. This guy rode on every sidewalk, and just took every darn chance with traffic. I rode behind him, and he would change direction without telling me, and I over rode the path. I made a wider turn, and hit sand. Well, I went down, and broke my nose, and skin my knees pretty good. Once, I stop the bleeding, we rode on. We were riding up hill, I decided to pass him on the right side. I told him I was passing on the right, he rode into me, and pushed me over the railing. Well, my $2000.00 bike got the worst. I bent my fork, and front rack. The new built wheel has three dented spots, and two bent spokes. The idiot thought I was passing him on the left, while he was watching me pass him. I called my Girl friend to come get me. That is the last time I am riding with another person who disregards safely and common sense. That was my ride for the day. I did ride 60 miles, but the plan was to ride 100 miles. Guess, I will stay solo for a long time.
