"From where I stand... You're beautiful."
Had a little accident…
52.0 miles and one month of riding without a bad accident… It was bound to happen at some point. Here I was going full speed through a green light in the rain, and a little blue Hyundai runs their red light and turns into me, I had two choices; Let the car hit me or swerve into an electrical box/crosswalk sign. I hit the box on my left side and snapped the gear changer, flew over the handlebars, and landed on the sidewalk. The driver kept going, as did everyone else on the road except two pedestrians who came from a few hundred metres away to check on me. Luckily, the only damage was to my bike and a little soreness in my left arm and shoulder. What’s funny is that my water bottle did not stop when the bike and I did, it flew out of the sleeve and went across a yard. 

 Moral of the story? If you see someone have an accident, STOP AND CHECK ON THEM, especially if you are the idiot who caused it.
