I'm really sorry to see this. While commenting to myself: "Self, don't bike in EPA", I'm also feeling bad for people who finds it necessary to do so.

I want to help them, but I'm also lazy and skeptical. Oh well.

I ride my bike all the time from Palo Alto through East Palo and across the Dumbarton Bridge. I've never had a problem. I don't ride my bike after midnight, though.

I am glad the victim is doing OK.
