The internet nazi has returned to the office. I wont know the full extent of the damage until tomorrow but I’m pretty sure every mtb site I go to is on the restricted list. So cheers to all!
Oh AND I got clipped by a car door at the end of my ride tonight. I was just starting out on the road and there’s parking parallel to the road. I pass a guy that looked like he was getting out of his car and I had to get kind of close cus there was a car behind me. So I cheated in a little but BAM! He’s actually opening the door and I clip it a hit the ground. Luckily I was barely moving to begin with so for ‘me’ it was really no big deal and I really shouldn’t have put myself in that position to begin with. He was pretty apologetic and I could tell he was sincere so I told him ‘it was no big deal’ and motored off. It shook him up a pretty good. Luckily the car behind me didn’t squash me :)
Anyhoo that’s it for the drama in my world right now.

That sucks on both points Tony. Did you do any damage to his door? The only time a car has come in contact with my bike was when I was actually standing at an T intersection waiting to turn left while some comes and turns into me. I got outta the way but my handlebar end left a gigantic scratch down the side of her shiny red BMW. :)
