Yup...that happened.  Blasting along just north of the LFT this morning.  Watching the ground for ice when the car door opened. 15feet later with a couple of bruises I got a real good look at the pavement thank you to the two cyclists who stopped, delt with the driver and checked if I was okay....and really checked, not just riding on adrenaline you make the world better.  Thank you.  I am.  I got lucky.  Nothing some ice isn’t fixingbe careful out there everyone, and do stop to helpPKSee More
