It's dangerous being a cyclist
Getting hit by a car on your bike hurts and ruins your wheels.

I am mostly okay but I have this nasty deep bruise on my chest from where the handlebars and I became close, close, close friends. It hurts pretty bad.

The car that hit me wasn't going very fast, it was a kid who was turning right on a red light and was looking the wrong direction, decided to go and then discovered two feet later that I was there. So nothing fast or dangerous but it was still not fun.

And now I have to walk the two miles to work. Boooooooooooooo.

I don't think so. No guarantees :P.

Yowch, sorry to hear that. People don't tend to take as much notice of cyclists as they should.

Portland is notorious for cars hitting bicyclists. The news always seems to be reporting on new fatalities, and that doesn't even count minor incidents like yours.

Sounds like a major bummer tho. :( Glad you're okay, and make sure to watch out for those stupid drivers out there!

If I offended you, then I sincerely apologize.

Guess I just keep forgetting how incredibly different you are from my usual circle of friends. My bad.

In any case, glad to hear you're relatively unscathed.

Ok, wow, that is not ok for you to say something like that. That is not even remotely funny, regardless of who it is you are saying it to.

Walking to work is almost the worst (the worst is getting hit by a car).

I guess there's no chance that cool dude kid's insurance will cover your bike?

Dude, hope you're alright man. I honestly can't say I've been hit by anything on a bike, but I've been in my fair share of bike accidents. They ain't fun.

Also two miles is a bit of a bummer, but if I could walk it in my condition, I'm sure you'll be fine. Still not a great thing though.

Despite the seriousness of this, I did laugh at the bit about the handlebars. :(

Motorcyclists and cyclists are always more likely to be hit than other cars, because people generally set their minds to look out for other cars, and just don't think about cyclists.
I hope the bruise goes away soon enough. :)

Seeing as it looked like a simple hit, nothing crazy, I doubt they even kept in contact.
