Best wishes Nygard… Damn man.
So about 24 hours from when jenn flew to Taipei, I got hit by a car riding home from the Point 83 Tuesday night ride. I left the group and had just crossed the Montlake bridge when I got hit by a minivan. They didn’t stop. Police at the scene think they caught them. EMTs walked me from the scene to the ER at UW’s hospital. I have three stitches in the corner of my right eye, and four broken facial bones, road rash on my right elbow which looks more like carpet burn, and no bike. The police took it as evidence. I didn’t get a good look at it, but the rear wheel is broken into pieces, and I suspect the frame is toast too. And I just built those wheels this week. Three fucking rides and toast. I got discharged at about 06:00 and cabbed it home.
I hurt, I am lonely, and I am cranky.
Ride careful kids.
