Scary Moment.

MikeyI am always alert on my bike. It's one of the only times I am fully focused on my current task. Scan, identify possible hazard, predict possiblities, always have an escape plan, and keep track of where people are on the road in proximity to you because you never know when you are going to need to get the heck out of dodge.

A few days ago I'm cruising along on Bobby Jones and I'm in the middle lane out of three. A car merges on and I'm ahead of this car slightly. Well, I assumed he was just going to move over the initial lane to merge but I was wrong. My peripheal vision catches movement really close to me so I look over and WHOA!! It's that car coming INTO my lane!! I could probably have reached my foot over and kicked the front of his car. I'm not even in this cats blind spot. I'm freaking IN FRONT of him. Luckily for me, no one was in the fast lane so I swerved over there ASAP. Then I just shook my head and continued on my course home with a slight knot in my stomach. That was close.
