You were riding a bike so it's your fault. At least that has been my experience. Hope yours is better.

I was doing about 20, car next to me about 35 when passed. When car was about 20-30 feet ahead of me driver signaled at same time starting turn into a gas station. When at 90 degrees to bike lane driver stopped. I couldn't go left (cars) or right (curbs) so I jammed on the brakes, managed to get unclipped and slammed into the back right quarter panel.

I wasn't seriously hurt, driver admitted fault and she's going to pay for me a new tire. Expensive tires

Thanks for all the replies, even the thread jacks.

Well said. Ever wonder how many cyclists have even searched out some form of safety class for riding in traffic? I wonder. Get well and get a matched set of tires!
