My Accident Prone Life

You know when you watch Comedies or Sitcoms and the bicyclist gets hit by a car door but usually is alright and everyone laughs? Well, not this time! I decided that I wanted to spend a nice Sunday afternoon cycling to the beach and swimming in the ocean with my friend Jess. The morning started out great; slept in, had breakfast, then made the drive to Jess'. She has some concerns about cycling certain parts of PCH to get to the beach but I assure her that I have ridden that path a million times and it is fine. So there we are 10 miles into our ride almost at our swim spot and BAM.....a woman in a blue Prius opens her car door right in from of me. Now I assure you I did not get up and people were not laughing!!
Good news however, I sort of walked away with minor scrapes and bruises and...well...I am on crutches for injuring my left knee. On the plus side my bike survived almost unharmed. To date this is 8 months from my last serious injury. Lets pray the recovery time is faster.


  1. yeah, it's a lot funnier when it's planned. We are a good accident prone pair ;)
