The three women cyclists, all from Montreal's South Shore suburbs, were practising for a triathlon along Highway 112 when they were hit from behind leaving a trail of bicycle helmets, water bottles and twisted bike frames along the side of the highway.
Good thing they were wearing helmets.
Someone wrote, "Wow ... be careful out there cyclists ... take care now .." in the comments section following the story. I suppose the writer means well, but a cyclist can take all the care in the world, yet an inattentive motorist can still turn you into a grease spot on the pavement.
I was cut off by impatient drivers twice within 2-4 minutes and two blocks this morning. Some bridges are out, so drivers are a little squirrely these days. The snowfall wasn't helping either.
