Cyclist lost control of bike while negotiating large pothole on Mona Vale Road. Narrowly avoided impact by truck from rear. Truck thankfully took evasive action

Guess he/she just didn’t see it. Glad they saw me.

Check out the mess that is 14th St. NW from Mount Pleasant down to Rhode Island Ave. yesterday morning…
1. U-turning vehicle;
2. Uber drop off in bike lane and door opening;
3. Van pulling out of driveway;
4. white car blocking the box;
5. barriers obscuring bike lane below FL Ave.;
6. steel plates and asphalt patches below U St.;
7. truck unloading in the bike lane;
8. Circulator bus pulling into bike lane for no obvious reason;
9. lane closed due to construction zone;
10. scooter rider about to enter bike lane; and
11. parking vehicle blocking lane after bus stop.
