wow. I was riding my bicycle with friends out there when this happened...we didn't see it, but it comes to no surprise. people riding two wheelers: ride as safely as you can and be aware of your surroundings. people driving cars: pay attention to your surroundings and drive carefully around bikers and cyclists.

to the guy in the dirt-covered mini-van which passed us north bound going into baldwin with your hand stuck out the window giving us the bird: we were all riding single file close to the edge of the road-you really showed your lack of maturity. be careful, because you just may have forgotten that you have a license tag on your car, and now I know who you are and where you live.
next time something bad happens to you-blame me. it could be me, or maybe not, who knows? you just never can tell. :) its a good thing cyclists aren't grudge-holders :o
