Jason over at RocBike asked me a few days ago to write a guest essay.
I sent it to him, wondering if he might find it a little too much of a downer since it talks about some serious cycling accidents in my life.
Come to find out, Jason had actually witnessed and assisted in the most significant accident.
I should say I have known Jason in "real" (i.e. non-blog) life for several years now, as a local activist, radio host, and caregiver of one of my favorite young people.
But I didn't know him at the time of the accident, and we never put 2+2 together until the blog-o-sphere connection!
Jason does a great service to Rochester cyclists, especially commuters, and obviously he did a great thing for me and my family. Thanks, Jason!!
