    Especially lucky if he is not cited for riding in a crosswalk and salmoning, too!

    That was amazing. Three things could have injured him, the car, the flying bumper, and of course the truck. How he was not hurt is beyond me.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    What is salmoning? I've not heard that term before.

    Jumping to the head of the line, like a salmon swimming upstream. Doesn't stop for anything.

    salmoning is riding the wrong way (against traffic, rather than with it). Shoaling is jumping ahead.

    Right. That makes more sense.
