    Wow - what a story! I am SO sorry and so glad you were not more seriously injured. Sorry about the bike.

    Out of curiosity, you said driver was up for a felony - was that hitting you guys or were there other circumstances (i.e., was she under the influence, on the lam, etc.)?

    Hi Mary,
    My heart goes out to you. I hope you mend quick. I'm so glad that the lady who hit was arrested and charged.

    Glad you're alive, and hope you're not too badly hurt. You really are lucky-that was more than too close a call!

    Hope she learns a lesson from this. At least it sounds like it's being taken seriously this time. When you're ready, tell us what happened. Until then, hugs.

    Mary - scary, but I'm glad you're "basically" okay! I understand what you were saying. I rode for years and years on really crowded roads and did not get hit until I was living in a small town in a nice big bike lane on a not that busy road!

    You just never know!

    oh

    Oh dear! Mary, sorry to hear you're banged up. I hope you heal quickly & get back on a bike soon!

    I sure hope the woman's learnt her lesson! I guess after paying a visit to court, she might!

    Wow, it's so much scarier to read about cyclists being hit when you know them! Take care and rest up. What kind of injuries did you have? Nothing broken I hope!

    Mary, you are one tough lady. Hope you and Linda both heal quickly!

    So very sorry your Seven didn't make it. What a heartbreak. I'll light a candle for it tonight.
