Got hit today...
on the broadside. I had a right of way, was moving in the line of cars when a gray jeep from the side road decided to make a left turn into the main road. It slowed mid turn, the driver looked my way and sped up into my side hitting my hip. I managed to keep up for the split second leaning over his hood, so got out of his way and fell between the lanes.
Do not worry, the bike is more or less OK, the bar tape needs a replacement and a front wheel needs some truing.
My reflexes weren't fast enough to lay down longer and accept an offer of help from a nice lady passing by, I got up too early, got the apologies and a phone number from the driver and rode to work.
