I was recently hit head on by a left turning 16-year-old driving a car full of kids. Flipped up over and landed some measurable amount of distance from the middle of the intersection to the side of the curb. It was just a short cruise down the street for me….and I didn’t have my helmet! Stupid. Made it out alive. Whether across continents or across town, please protect your head.
My city ride didn’t fare so well.
