My daughter.

Yesterday, my 20 year old daughter was involved in a 2 vehicle accident on I376. She is ok. Her bike is not. She is an ATGATT rider and walked away with only minor injuries.

I am posting this here and not on Facebook as we do not wish to alarm my mother and in-laws with the news. We will do that later today, so if this is shared outside of the VR, I ask for discretion.

So sorry to hear about the accident, but thank goodness the ATGATT you drilled in to her saved her from serious injury or worse.

So glad it was only minor injuries. Bikes and clothes are replaceable. She's not.
She sure learned a good lesson from dad about safety and it was just driven home.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

whew, what a relief for you.
I dunno, my daughter talked about getting a bike awhile back and I talked her out of it, for now, I don't like my son riding I sure don't want her riding. I worry a lot.

Don't worry Ragdude. Their reaction time is much better than ours.
