    Tuesday evening, I was on my way to our weekly bike night and got rear ended by a young lady too busy texting to see slowing traffic. Got knocked off bike and went bouncing along the top of her car before taking a ride on the asphalt.

    I was geared up so no road salsa, but did a number on my lower back from the impact. Up and walking but not sure the bike is going to be repairable. Any accident you walk away from is a good one?
