If you do much cycling on the road, you understand the rational fear of getting hit by a car. It seems like everyone has either been hit or knows someone who has. These incidents can range anywhere from a simple side-swipe that causes little to no damage to much worse. While we all hope to never experience colliding with a car, it’s important to know what to do in the event that you do get hit.
A few years ago, I had the misfortune of getting in a minor accident with a car while I was on my bike. Not having prepared for such an event, I did everything all wrong, causing me more stress and grief than it would have otherwise.
