"Enquiries continue" - I certainly hope so.
I can't print the words that come to mind.
Update to the lady who hit and ran:

So she's sorry for the tweet, but still not sorry for hitting the cyclist.
Yeah. With lots of time to reflect on just how sorry she is that she hit the biker.
Our latest bike outing yesterday went from the Green Line in Manhattan Beach to the Blue Line in Long Beach, along the coast. Tired legs today!
Today's ride, 47.7 miles 5100 feet of elevation gain.
Ione to Volcano the hard way - Ione, CA
Saturday's ride was harder, though. Mt. Hamilton, 54.6/6900'. I plan to ride another 40 or so tomorrow, but the climbing will be easier. I plan to rest on Wednesday, because we have tentative plans to ride up to the top of Ebbets Pass on Thursday.
He's an animal! :)
Being free of serious health issues makes it possible for me to ride at this level, or riding at this level keeps me free of serious health issues. Might be some of each, but either way, I'm one content old geezer.
Have you always been a long distance cycler?
We'd occasionally do some day hiking or rent bikes to ride in Yosemite Valley. We ended buying cheap department store bikes (which I wouldn't recommend), and I got interested in mountain biking as a way of exploring trails. I went to a weekend clinic at a ski resort which pretty much got me hooked, despite finishing each day bruised and covered with dirt.
Of course I had to get a decent entry level mountain bike, and I met several other mountain bikers online, and we'd ride together on weekends. I also figured I could use the bike to lose a "bike's worth" in weight. Around the same time, I changed jobs to a location only two miles from home, so I started riding the bike to work. I'd even get up early in the morning, so I could put in some miles before heading for work.
Then I showed up for a ride with a local cycling club. I couldn't keep up with the others while riding a mountain bike. Two days later, I bought a second-hand road bike from one of the club members and started riding it with the club. I thought I was in pretty good shape, until I'd arrive at the regroups and breaks well after the others. But I didn't give up, and I eventually got better. Within a couple years I found myself riding week long supported cycling tours of up to 500 miles. By then riding more than 100 miles a week was part of my routine. My job was now 4 miles away, so just riding to work and back accounted for 40 miles. On at least a couple days a week, I'd add another 15 or so after I got home.
By the time I retired, I was riding more than 8,000 miles a year. I've pretty much given up mountain biking, but I have a circle of friends and club members that I regularly ride with. It's rare that I ride alone.
OK so late 30's is not too late to get into the sport :)
Please keep sharing the trip reports, would love to see photos some time.
You might be able to see my rides (since February) by following this link. Many of the "activities" have pictures. I also have a lot of ride pictures on Facebook.
