  • This really makes me angry, as a cyclist, and as a mom, and just as a human being….What in the world could make someone feel that it is okay to keep driving after hitting a fellow human being with their vehicle?????
    What if that was you on the street??? Your kids??? Your friend or other loved one???
    I hope they catch this heartless a******. And I hope that the person that was hit pulls through and is able to recover completely.
