Sorry to hear about your misadventure. But ecstatic to hear that both you and the driver are ok! Hope you get it all sorted out.

Thank heaven you are all right.  I would still give a thought to calling the Police.  I had a friend who was struck, just scraped, but the $10,000 bike a goner.  The insurance from the driver payed but they almost choked when they found out how much the bike was.

Yeah, the driver isn't answering my calls anymore. I'll go to the police tomorrow morning. But how can I prove to them that she did hit me? I could be making all this up for all they know.

 

The shop asks a hundred dollars to change the wheel. That's usually too small an amount to claim to your own insurance, but I've never made a claim to somebody else's insurance. I'll have to ask the police tomorrow, as I really don't know what to do at this point.

She could have giving you the correct number but is hesitant to answer due to fear and anxiety. Then again, soooooo many people have message answering options.

 

Because you have her info, file a formal Police Report and let them investigate.

actually... my location is not accurate. While my parrents live in socal.... I'm currently in carbondale IL (grahhhhhduate school. Biking is big here...and i used to use my mothers bike when i was at home ( a scattante, it was very nice with clipless pedals and drop down handle bars)).

 

 

I'm actually wondering if anyone has any advice for fall/winter commute/bike riding. I think i have all the gear for my body (jackets and such) but im wondering if you guys think its worthwhile to go clipless in the winter when it rains/snow. I've biked clipless before, but do people actually put the pedals like that on non roadbikes ? I really like DZR shoes too. anyway what should i get to maintain my bike?

 

 

all suggestions apperciated

Ya, clipless is every bit as popular on MTB as road. I love my Salsa, but it's >$3K. I am partial to ti frames as they have a virtually unlimited fatigue life, flex where they should, and don't rust. Aluminum frames are light, but generally aren't made to last.

Congrats on your endeavors! Guess when you're riding in between snow piles you could think about the Strand. ksc75smile.gif

I actually texted my buddy today, "what i wouldn't give to be on my bike riding the strand right now".

 

oh well.

Finally worked out how to cycle at a higher cadence for longer periods...
61.3km, 2 hours 20 minutes...
I'm wanting to work up to a metric century, and then a 'proper' century, but damn, 60km is hard work.
How do you guys ride your centuries? Do you ride them solo or in groups?
What kind of pace do you aim for?

@ pigmode

 

Thanks for the most beautiful pix. Thanks for the inspiration. I was absolutely moved by your journeys! Can't wait to move to HNL...

When it hurts and you're tired, keep riding. Stay on the bike no matter what.
