Did the blood not give you a clue??

Posted on Mon, Apr 30, 2012 at 9:54 AM

To the woman who is so darn concerned with sidewalk safety: Thank you for stopping next to me and my bike. Seriously, thank you sooooo much for glaring at me as you spit out, "You know, you're not supposed to have your bikes on the sidewalk." If you stopped for a minute and actually looked, maybe you'd notice the blood streaming from my hands and knees, and the concerned pedestrians around me?? Maybe you'd realize that yeah, it WASN'T MY IDEA TO BE ON THE SIDEWALK EITHER. My brakes failed while going down a hill, forcing me to bail to the side and avoid crashing into a car or killing myself.

Maybe next time take a minute to look around, and ask a question or two before you make your self-righteous claims. And by the way, if my bike and I are WALKING together, we have as much fucking right to be on the sidewalk as you do. Pompous ass. Oh, and to the sweet woman who held my bike and the cute biker who offered me his gloves post-crash?? So much love to you. So much. —The Brakeless Bitcher
