To the guy that hit me on the golden gate bridge.
Monday night June June 21st probably shortly after 7pm. If anyone knows this guy, or heard about him, put us in contact.
I was doing a nice little recovery ride and the wind was intense, suddenly out of no where from behind me I hear some guy yelling, next thing I know he flys past clips my bars while trying to pass me in the narrows at high speed, didn't call it out or anything, I go down, slide for about 7feet into one of the big boxes.
He stopped and helped me up and put my chain back on which I appreciate, but seriously, bad form on the bridge. My left leg is totally rashed up, my rear skewer, left shifter, pedal, and saddle are all scratched up, luckily no frame damage. I hit my head on the railing and I think I was in shock as I can hardly remember anything about the guy (there's red paint on my helmet). I destroyed a pair of Rapha gloves, and scuffed up my bib shorts, but am lucky I'm not really hurt. Last way I expected to eat it was getting hit from behind by another cyclist, but in hindsight I'm pretty bummed out and out some decent cash for something that wasn't my fault.
If you're gonna pass people on the bridge, don't try it in the narrows, and call it out.
Rant off. Thanks
