Re: I was hit by a car last night...
I'm happy to hear you weren't seriously hurt. I've been on bicycle in big cities since the 1980s and I've been hit a few times. Luckily most of them were minor.
Back in 2009 I spent a week in the hospital after flying face-first into the B-pillar of an SUV that pulled out in front of me at about 20MPH.
Doesn't take much on a bicycle to get hurt! There's some members here who can attest to that first-hand!
