He is lucky that he did not suffer more permanent and debilitating injuries, while bicycle riding as injuries go; in the DFW area alone there have been many cyclists’ troubles, including pedestrian/jogger into bicyclist and also into each other. http://www.dallasnews.com/news/community-news/dallas/headlines/20101013-Pedestrian-cyclist-injured-in-2-5581.ece There are many other modern gyms with great alternatives and better controlled environments, so it’s somewhat careless to expose ourselves to danger if you are schedule for such a privilege opportunity.

The only person traveling through time was your humble columnist. The correct date of the accident was Jan. 15. Apologies.
