    Nope but that happened to me already. Truck drivers here like going ninja on bike riders. They coast when nearing bike riders so you can't hear their engines.

    Some drivers think they are by once you are behind where they sit. He crowded but the road narrowed at the bridge. Possible he was just oblivious. Still sucks but we have to avoid the accident if we can. I have had my share of this sort of thing.

    On the other hand, some bike riders here think they are ninja...

    Been getting this viral video on my social media (probably to scare me from bike commuting) and up to now, I can't still play the video past the point before the biker went under...

    Thanks for the warning. I watched long enough to get the gist of what was about to happen and then bailed.

    I watched it through. Not pretty by any means, but ought be "required reading" for bicyclist (and motor vehicle) drivers ed. Amazing how fast a rider can go from vertical in one line to horizontal in another. I was surprised, even if I shouldn`t have been.
