“Dear PoPville,

On Monday, my wife had a bike accident on the corner of 16th and R (no villain, just a bag of dry cleaning got caught in her front wheel). My wife is fine, she went over the handlebars, chipped her tooth and got a black eye and a mild concussion, but nothing was broken.

But I wanted to say a public thank you to Ariel, a fellow bike commuter who stopped and called me from my wife’s cell phone and stayed with her until I could come pick her up. Getting that phone call was a scary moment, and it means a lot to see people willing to take the time to help each other out. I didn’t get her information as we were hustling to the emergency room, but wanted say thank you to Ariel on behalf of my wife and I!”
