Some news from Russia.
MOSCOW (Reuters) - A man cycling from Taiwan to Moscow made it as far as Western Siberia only to be knocked off his bicycle by a drunk driver, Russian media reported Monday.Travelling 7,000 km by bicycle without mishap was probably hoping for too much. Here in Florida a bicyclist who'd attempt such a trip probably wouldn't get out of the state without being hit or run off the. Heck they may not even get out of Palm Beach County!
The 37-year-old Taiwan resident, who was not named, was nearly two-thirds of the way through his roughly 7,000 km (4,350 mile) trip when he was hit by a car in the Novosibirsk region, Interfax news agency reported.
"The victim is currently in a satisfactory condition ... The drunk driver fled from the scene of the accident," the agency quoted a police statement as saying.
