Hit and Run on the 13th

Broken bike
Enrique was cycling along the Carrera 13 cicloruta this afternoon a bit after 5 p.m., assuming that on the cicloruta bicycles had some sort of priority - or at least some respect.

Enrique's scraped arm
That changed when a car pulling out across the sidewalk hit his rear wheel, causing him to run into a pole and fall off the bike. The bike's fork was bent backwards, the derailleurs twisted and the chainring bent. Enrique was scraped and bruised but otherwise alright.

By the time Enrique picked himself and looked around, the driver who'd hit him had left the scene - undoubtedly angry at the impudent cyclist who'd had the nerve to get in front of his vehicle. It's a wonder, incidentally, that the driver was able to leave the scene at all, amidst the avenue's rush hour traffic congestion.
The scene later on on La 13 - nothing moving but the bikes.
