another kinda driver

my helmet camera worked good i think, maybe another polo movie. mykle lives on 27th and Killingsworth and has my mini from the MtBomb we did the day before. We strap it down to DuffNumbaFive.

Killingsworth is fast. there is on street parking.

A car is parked ahead, I will check behind to see if someone is coming. yes... I wait, they pass, and another...

and there is a break in the metal waves. I dive in. a car is approaching me from straight ahead. I keep biking fast and have started to pass the parked car and am about to pull back over. There are 3 cars and me.

the driver behind me cannot wait any longer. She tries to pass. I am clipped from behind.

I lay there for a min
"you need to get out the road."
"If you only take one thing away from this, it is that I have a right to be here."

she tells "I didn't want to hit the oncoming car. Would you like a ride?"


we load the bike and its gonna ok i think. then an ambulance rolls by. I flag it down. I didn't call it so I guess its lucky, they wrap me.

"yeah, if i can get downTown that would be wonderful"
"oh, I dont have enough gas to get that far."
"... well, how much gas do you have?"
"I was just gonna go home."
"So you are offering me a ride to your home"
