  • I noticed the fire alarms went off all over…

  • Kind of late to be out riding…lucky to only have a broken leg. Hope they heal quickly.

  • Not all bicyclists are riding for recreation. For some it’s their only transportation.

  • I’d be willing to bet that the rider was wearing dark clothing & NO reflective materials to aid visibility & likely avoiding this altogether!!! As was said in another comment hope they heal fast!!!

    • How kind of you to blame the victim when you weren’t there and it benefits no one to speculate about. Thank God we have you to contribute so much wonderfulness to the world. In case you thought for even a second that being that unnecessarly rude was made okay by a half ass “hope you get better”, just know that it doesn’t and I hope you start being a contribution to society. If your bored, go volunteer. If you don’t have anything nice or truthful to say then remember, you don’t have to say anything. Your just one out 7.5 billion people and your speculation isn’t worth more than a pile of dog shit.

    • I know that dude!

    • I would take you up on that. Note: this is not * blaming the victim* . Just speculation based on the reality that most pedestrian and bicycle vehicular mishaps at night involve people not easily visible in the dark. Of course distracted driver, drunk or stoned driver etc is also possible factor. Heck i almost hit a bicyclist in broad daylight not long ago. Guy was riding against traffic, no-handed, dinking around with cellphone and veered into traffic. Thankfully i was not texting.

      • Yesterday I watched a woman ambling along in the middle of a street, phone to ear, as traffic moved to avoid hitting her. She was crossing the street but taking about a block to do it. At least I thought she was crossing because she was still walking more or less down the middle of it when I moved on.

      • Exactly my point, besides the one some seem to think I have sitting atop my head!!!!

    • Right, just like those two girls in Fortuna…should not have been skating at night, eh?
      And you know what? I AGREE WITH YOU😊

      • Flatgirl and Dan F, do I smell romance?

      • However, with the “two girls from Fortuna” that you bring into this…it was not dark yet, it was only a few minutes past 9:00 p.m., and on July 12th it is still light enough out that “hit-and-run mom” should have seen them. I hope this bicyclist has a full and speedy recovery.

  • OK!! I WAS THERE RIDING MY BIKE AND ALMOST HIT HIM MYSELF!!!THIS GUY WAS TOTTALY DARK WITH NO LIGHTS OR REFLECTORS AT ALL!!!I PASSED HIM AROUND COLLAGE OF THE REDWOODS!!THIS WAS HIS OWN FALT!! LUCKY IT WASENT WORSE!!!VECHILE VS BIKE IS NOT GOING TO GO WELL FOR THE BIKE!!I WONDER IF HE WILL TRY RIDING AT NIGHT WITOUT ANY LIGHTS AGAIN!!WHAT A DUMBASS!!
