Yesterday's Ride

To Publix and back for onions, baking soda, and aluminum foil.

Really windy.  I felt like I was pedaling as hard as I could just to stay still on the way back.  Had to stop for a breather about halfway.  Yeesh!

On the way there, I about got killed.  I was riding along a really narrow road.  I've ridden it before with no trouble, but it must have been at a different time of day, as this time the traffic was pretty heavy.  Stressful, to say the least.  

Suddenly I heard a car next to me, way too close.  I decided to bail and quickly swerved off the road.  She clipped my handlebars anyway, and kept going without a look back.  I didn't catch the plate number.

For the love of Christ people, please look where you're going when you drive.  Also, the law for passing a cyclist is to reduce your speed and give them three feet of space.
