* Unfortunately we did have a rider crash this year. Sounds like it was an unfortunate bump/bad luck upon making a turn. A broken collar bone, a few cracked ribs, and a scraped up hand. Luckily the injured rider had lots of support from their team, as we tended to her injuries and notified the Society to look for her husband, as the ambulance arrived. Cycling is always a risk, but considering how bad things could be with a bike accident we (collectively) were fortunate. Unfortunately for her, she will be out for a bit, but has already planned for her return! Be safe out there everyone, and happy healing to our rider!
