I'm doing a little better today. I was going 35-40 and someone came onto my lane. I suffered a broken collar bone and road rash all down my left side. My right elbow has a hole in it. I just want to say please pay attention to idiot careless drivers.

You broke your collar bone from the crash? If so that sucks, I broke mine about a month ago and still cant ride, its a slowwww healing bone. Hope you get better quick though.

Hope you get better and able to ride again this year. Collarbone and shoulder injuries heal real slow.....I hope all goes well. I hope the driver at least stopped!

I had full gear and the driver sped off. They couldn't find him. There was hardly any traffic and I have full coverage on the bike. It was about 4pm on the outside of town.
