  1. I hope this poor woman has a speedy recovery. I do have to wonder, though- was she wearing a helmet??? I cannot begin to describe my shock at the sheer number of cyclists I see around town on a daily basis NOT wearing helmets. I constantly roll down my window and tell kids that there is no “brain shop” where they can go get another one if they smash this one- and they seriously think I’m kidding! I haven’t done that to the men on their way to Yeshiva or the women on their way to work because they are adults…but really, NO ONE IS INVINCIBLE! Please wear a helmet and make sure your loved ones do as well. Don’t be a fool- helmets are cool!

  2. Kudos to number 1. Question was she wearing reflector a belt, did she have lights. .
    How many times have I nearly knocked over a bicyclist or pedestrian because they think that everyone sees them even if there invisible to the human eye.
    Pls Pls wear a Reflector , Helmets have proper lighting , if not for your sake than do it for others . .
