Is this written from experience?

A recent experience?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Not the same experiences, but I've been a cyclist all my life, and have had my share of accidents caused by the behavior of drivers, including one that resulted in the need for dental work, and one that resulted in severe black & Blue bruises up, and down one side of my body, and so many close calls that I've lost count.

I've also seen, and been on the receiving end of, careless behavior of fellow cyclists.

On my Bike Blog the 1st post, in 2003, was about sharing the road:

Can't We All Get Along? = http://www.cyclingdude.com/2003/01/cant_we_all_get.html

All over the world cyclists have been injured, and even killed, in incidents similar to these, and even worse.

I get Google Alerts for the words Bicycling, and Cycling, and others, and far too many of the stories that Google finds are about accidents where either the motorists, or cyclist, is at fault.

On my Bike Blog, The Cycling Dude I have, for years, written about issues of cyclist safety, and Sharing the Road, and my Category Archives are full of my coverage of, and opinion, on these issues, including picture filled local stories that I personally undertook to research.

Some of this has not exactly endeared me to certain folks, both motorist, and cyclist. ;-D

I often wear a "3 Feet Please" T-Shirt, or Jersey (The words in Big Block Letters that can't be missed!), on my Commutes, and have been honked at, flipped off, and yelled at a few times in the last couple of months. ;-D
