Welcome to IWETHEY!

New OMG!
I'm relieved to hear you arent hurt. As for the car, things always seem to have a way of working out. See what unfolds.
New My current line of thought on this is that I should...
...join [link|http://www.seattlecriticalmass.org/|Critical Mass] and hit on hawt biker chicks!

Wait... [link|http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/saturdayspin/276857_sorbo08.html|That might not be such a good idea...]
Hurt me if you must, but let the duckie go!
New IME, avoid Critical Mass
In the name of "promoting bicycling" they do things as mentioned in the second article you linked to...Such as riding against red lights, thereby blocking the flow of traffic through downtown $CITY at 5:30 pm on Friday. This has the effect of severely PISSING OFF MOTORISTS who are TRYING TO GET HOME.

I've been to one CM ride a few years back when I was cycling heavily. I heard people walking up Michigan Avenue alongside us asking some riders "What's with all the bikes?" The sole reply was "Critical Mass"...As if that were supposed to explain everything.

After riding about 2 miles, I'd been through enough red lights and seen enough pissed off pedestrians and motorists to know that I wasn't quite so activist in my cycling. I was there for a ride, not to get people angry at me...So I stopped riding. Never again for me.
