I was hit by a car....they don't see us! Please be carful!

Hey ALL,

I thought I'd send you all a short note.

I may have ridden with you in the summer and if not, maybe in the future.

Anyway, back in September I was out riding in my neighborhood in San Jose on my mountain bike towards the trail head, when a car struck me at 30 mph. Didn't see him coming, happen so fast. I hit the fender first, then smashed the windshield, then rolled off the hood and I was ejected 10 feet. Anyway, Emergency trauma center from there!

I suffered multiple broken bones, (leg, shoulder,ribs) and I am still layed up, but recuperating one day at a time and now I am actually riding the stationary bike.

Anyway, Be careful out there, they don't see us...just wanted to drop a line and stay in touch and hope to be back and see you all in the late Spring or Summer.
Happy holidays,
Bye for now

I hear you, car drivers are never thinking of bike or motorcycle riders when on the road. That's a sad reality we have to endure in a car oriented society. Good luck with your recovery. Hopefully you can join soon
