8/29 Bayway NRLB? or, heather's head

omg....  that's terrible.  i'm glad she's more or less OK.  does
anyone know any updates?  if she's still in the hospital, a get-well
visit might be in order....

(and yeah ... pacelines on those narrow bike paths are super sketch
due to the number of pedestrians/dogs/kids/unstable-cyclists ... be
careful out there, and if you paceline on the paths, always keep in a
position where you can see over the shoulder of the dude in front of
you ...)
