Shattered Glass Ups the Bike Toll

POP!Stephanie and I went to pick up my bike tonight.  I was pretty excited to get it back.  It has been tuned up and now has a new computer.  Stephanie was coming out of Target and I was putting the bike rack on the back of the car.  Then out of nowhere – POP! followed by what sounded like Rice Crispy’s Snap, Crackle, Pop.  Small pieces of glass had been thrown in every direction including directly at Stephanie and Zander who were standing directly beside the rear glass at the time.

Less than happy.I looked over and saw the entire rear glass was shattered and the sound of crackling continued.  Stephanie called Dianne while I started to pull the rear glass out piece by piece.  I had gone back into Target to get a couple of trash bags and a pair of gloves.  We both took it in stride but Stephanie was not overjoyed with the situation.  I called Safelite AutoGlass – after 8 years as an employee there, I couldn’t call anyone else, even if I’m no longer eligible for the employee discount.

The window will be replaced tomorrow and the total cost of my bike collision just went up to over $300.  Merry Christmas Us.  Check out the rest of the clean up effort in the picture gallery – http://sackrider.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=6282

    Was this just an amazing coincidence or does putting a bike on the bike rack always increase the risk of breaking the rear window? How did it happen?
