well we're all glad you're still with us!!

I agree too, too many people dying on our roads and while cyclists that fill up the roads in groups and think they're immune to the same road rules the rest of us have to abide by drive me UP THE WALL, I wouldn't want any of those people hurt by equally idiotic drivers with attitudes and no patience.


Trina, I so agree with you.


I agree with you Trina. My son is a cycles and has had soome near misses.We are out there promoting an active lifestyle and cleaning up our ozone layer so I think we need to be spending money on educating the public. So many say the cyclists should be on the bikeways and footpaths but these fit cyclists are travelling almost at the same speed as some cars so walkers and cyclists don't mix. It is no different in Australia Trina.
So pleased you pulled through with no apparent longterm effects. Must have been a worrying time for you all.


I can't think of much scarier trina! Glad ur recovered. Great post


Loved your post and glad you recovered to share your LOL's and blogs.

Thanks for sharing this, I'm sure it is hard to talk about at times...

I so agree, glad you made a full recovery ... I have to say I do worry every time my husband rides to work or goes out for a weekend cycle... we share our lives with these people so why not the road too

It is hard to believe how stupid some folks out there are, both on 2 and 4 wheels. I regularly wonder if I am really seeing what is going on. This last w/e there were a whole load of cyclists on pennyfarthings and vintage bikes out here (riding very sensibly and safely) -it was pretty scary passing them, as you kept wondering if they were going to fall off or wobble!
The sooner EVERYONE learns the roadcode and develop some common sense, the better for cyclists, horse riders, walkers, tractor drivers and motorists alike. So glad that you are able to tell your story.


Wow, what a scary accident that must have been for you! I am glad you were/are okay.

I would personally be too scared to bike on the road, I have seen what other motorists do to avoid cyclists and it is downright dangerous. It's a shame that there aren't more cycleways or that our roads are not wider so that cyclists feel safe.
