I'm Feeling Lucky

I'm a little sore from yesterday's mishap, which left me with a mild case of road rash. As John of the blog, Delaware Bicycle News points out, John Griffith of Timonium, Maryland was not so fortunate, citing this story in the Salisbury Daily Times:
A DSP [Delaware State Police] spokesman said John G. Griffith, 44 of Timonium, Md. was riding his bicycle south on the shoulder of Coastal Highway. The chain apparently broke on his bicycle causing him to stop along west side southbound shoulder to repair it.
A 2002 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Barry Boulden, 18, of Millsboro was traveling south in the left lane approaching Griffith. Police said Boulden reportedly fell asleep while driving, drifted onto the shoulder and struck Griffith with the front of his vehicle.
The News Journal has more on Dr. Griffith:
Kim Martin, a spokeswoman for Johns Hopkins, confirmed Griffith was director of the Johns Hopkins Fibroid Center, which provides treatment for women with uterine fibroids.
I got up this morning and watched the peleton ride into Paris on the last day of the Tour de France. Depending on the weather and how I'm feeling, I might get back on my bike this afternoon. I'll be going back to work tomorrow morning, a little stiff and sore, but otherwise okay. I'm feeling pretty lucky today.

Our car-centric "planning" sucks. I would not let my children ride on the road outside our development under ANY circumstances.

Which sucks. They are basically stuck here until they get a drivers license.

With my body once again having been put in contact with the pavement, I am thinking about transportation design.

Stay tuned.
