I just cant believe the type of drivers out there these days. Today in the afternoon im riding along nordel just after scott road towards richmond and i got cut off by a car that came up behind me n swirved right in front of me. I had no time to slow down so i jus pinned the breaks didnt even have time to think, so back wheels locked and i go down lowsiding my bike. So bikes down i slide about 20 meters hitting the curb with my ankle. Anyways i get up thanking god im still alive and no cars were travelling close behind me i walk over to my bike i pick it up and move it over to the side. And heres the funny thing NOT A SINGLE DRIVER PULLED OVER TO ASSIST. The only person to stop was som older aged man on an cruiser who was travelling the opposite direction makes a u-turn and comes over to help me. All i could think was holy shit first of all for the punks that cut me off then wat the hell is wrong with these drivers. So any how i call the ambulance on my own sit around waiting with the old guy and some friends came by to help me out. Bike should be ok hopefully there's no frame damage but the shitty deal is since there was no other car involved ICBC is treating it as single vehicle accident and that means my insurance goes up regardless for somthing i didnt cause. But i guess the main thing at the end of this was that nothings broken and hopefully ill get better very soon and get back to doing what i love doing. Jus got rashed on my leg n my right arms.
I just thought id share my story and tell all of you riders be careful out there cause by the looks of it no one really gives a f*ck about us.
P.S. Thanks to Hugo the guy on the cruiser for helping me out
