comment Is there a way to hop up onto a parallel curb?
@DanielRHicks Legally don't know. Morally both of you. The car's owner for being in the bike lane where it doesn't belong, and you for failing to ride safely by not looking ahead for too long.

@DanielRHicks Right of way laws only specify whose insurance ends up paying for damages and who ends up in trouble with the police. They say nothing about who will end up injured or killed when someone screws up. The laws of physics OTOH says the smaller vehicle and its passenger(s) will normally end up worse off in the event of a collision.

Which civil war? The US one was in the 1860's.

comment How to protect myself when falling off the bicycle
@DanielRHicks +1 for using your water bottle. Having to remove a fresh scab to clean the wound underneath was more painful than the initial shredding on coarse sand.

Make sure you have a set of good drill bits to make the starter hole for the extractor too.
