STORIES FROM THE ROAD


AUG 15, 1996

NEAR MISS

When I had finished the bike path about ten miles south of the Bear Mountain Bridge in New York and gotten back on NY 9W, I noticed that the highway was pretty bad and there was a lot of traffic. In front of me, a car was getting ready to turn left. There wasn't any turning lane in the area, so the guy in the car just stopped and waited for the northbound traffic to clear.

I noticed in a rear-view mirror, that a car wasn't going to stop and wait for the stopped car to get out of the way but he wanted to go passed it on the right side, This put me into a very dangerous position. I had to swerve off what shoulder there was to get onto the grass.

Instead of getting off the road safely, I hit a pothole and went airborne into the grass. My sunglasses fell off my face and broke. None of my clothes or skin got damaged but I sort of sprained my right ankle slightly. The bike came out a little banged up with a spoke broken on the cluster side of my rear wheel. The wheel is a little out of true but it will have to do for a while. Praise ADONAI, I wasn't hurt seriously.
