Conséquences d'un accident de vélo

The consequences of a bicycle accident


Okay, I had to post this title "en Français " since MVG and I are in Montréal to get our Green Cards (that story will be another post).

So, as you may have guessed, there has been ANOTHER accident involving MVG and a bicycle. (It seems that she is a magnet for accidents this year) This time, however, MVG was actually not riding a bicycle. We were out for a run in the early morning along the Lachine Canal when out of nowhere (well, along a street) a dude comes flying along on his bike THROUGH A RED LIGHT and hits MVG. I saw the cyclist coming in my superior peripheral, but unfortunately MVG did not. It was kind of slow motion, as she tumbled over the front wheel and down to the pavement.



Thankfully, she was not hurt, and the cyclist was able to slow down enough to cause only a minor scratch. The cyclist was apologizing profusely (in French) to MVG, and she was saying "It's ok" back in English... I'm not sure either one knows what the other said.

Anyway, MVG insists that THIS is her last bicycling accident EVER.

Wheres' the 0xBEEF? So first of all I am sorry to read that MVG is having such difficulty navigating our city. Secondly, I am not sure what both of you are doing in Montréal, but I can't say that I disagree with your choice of cities! "Where's the 0xBEEF?" I have an inside source @ Innotech that has informed me that more than just a few heads have rolled over the last few months. I just want to know where the 0xBEEF is so that I can avoid any unfortunate coincidences! ~Gigantor~
