What a shitshow today. Liesurely ride up to "sea to shitshow" (add that one to the BCSB Wiki) to bask in the sun at Starbucks, Mr. PoPo on a beemer screams past me lights a blazin' to catch the lead rider in our pack, I immediately hit the binders and slow to a crawl, round a bend, and there he is off the bike, with bike blocking right hand lane. and everyone is getting pulled over. Yeah, uhuh, don't think so, cruise on by. Go commando in Lion's Bay for 15mins even though I was doing the speed limit on the way up when he passed me.
Southbound, coming up on Brittania Beach carousel, wick it up just a little, maybe 10kms over the speed limit, SCREACH goes the radar screamer, sure enough, marked cruiser in oncoming lane guns me. Go commando again in Furry creek and enjoy the ocean for a bit.
Further South I am in the left hand lane, watching a bagger in the North bound lanes weaving in and out of cars. Yup, you guessed it, didn't make the last weave, clips the car in front, and the sky is suddenly filed with plastic and chrome.
Among all the satellite debris, is a body, probably 20 feet in the air, head down, feet pointed skyward travelling toward me. i say to myself "I think this guy is going to land in my lap".
I estimate he travels 100 feet in the air, lands flat on his back on his side of the highway just short of the concrete divider.. Beenie helmet, shit shoes, open leather jacket. I pull over and run back to the scene to offer asistance. There is already an off duty EMT helping the guy out (conscious).
Welcome to April.
