About two months ago, I bought a bike. About a month ago, I had my first crash. A truck turned in front of me and into a parking lot. Friday morning was the first time since the crash I’d gotten back on the bike.
Fortunately, the commute from home was uneventful. To help quell the remaining demons, I slapped a press sign on my helmet – in 175-point font so it was extra visible – and set off for a ride specifically designed for safety.
I'm headed for a ride assembled by the Florida Department of Transportation to help hip riders to proper bike safety.
