Yeah so some jackass onna bike was going full speed in the wrong direction in the bike lane on Walnut St., a fairly busy street in the middle of the day, full of tons of cars, and so I am lucky that when he crashed into me I only scraped my elbow and bruised my hip pretty good. What I am much more upset about is that my bike is in the shop for $113 of repairs (my fork and front wheel are totally fucked up) until next Tuesday. I guess I'll be taking the bus more until then.

(edited to emphasize that I was hit by a bike, not a car. A car going the wrong way on a one-way street like Walnut would be utterly insane, whereas a bike is just mostly insane, in that you could potentially still get yourself or someone else actually killed)
