commented on This Is Why We Need Protected Bicycle Lanes in Downtown Seattle
@Dominic as the rider in this post Thank you for continuing this conversation that the cycalist community has been having for quite sometime. 2nd Ave is not safe. I rarely ride this route for this vary reason. And I paid for my bad decision. I hope Mayor McGinn, as a fellow cyclist, will keep looking to improve our safety.
If anyone cares, I am ok. I ride very defensively and was able to avoid serious injury. Only bruising, scrapes and bicycle damage. The guy that hit me was very kind and apologetic. Even gave me an awkward ride to my home in west Seattle.
Please be safe. And stop beeping assholes.
