I lived in Wilmington, North Carolina for a bit, and visited Durham one time to go to a flea market. I was hit by a logging truck riding my bike. No helmet. Hit the ground at 30mph. Ripped my clothes off my body. It wasn’t pretty. No trip to the doctor, and the jerk that illegally passed me got off with not even a ticket. Instead, I was told that I should find a different route to ride.
On a lighter note, I found this edit made up of footage from Durham in the 30’s and 40’s. I really like the kid doing the wheelie at 1:10.
