Hope everyone has fun this weekend. But a word of caution as you go into recovery mode. For those of you who ride bikes for x-training. (I dont think that is even a word.) Please wear a helmet! Cindy was out on one of her favorite trails last Saturday and hit a tree going fast on a downhill section. Helmut was broken in 5 places. She was only broken in 1. She hit with enough force to break her back at t-12. What would have happened if she had not been wearing a Helmet? She is in bed for the next 2-4 weeks. Dr. Jay says she was very lucky. So wear a Helmet! (Rick)
(Matt C adds: I just spoke with John and the latest from Dr. Jay is that Cindy fractured her back in two spots and will be in a brace as well. However the good news is that it should not effect her future athletic endeavors. For those that wish to send get well e-mails to Cindy you can send them to (e-mail address removed for www posting). The Rick mention was because John saw Rick riding without a helmet last week. John did not know it but as it turns out Rick got in a bike wreck last week as well and banged up his knee pretty good. Rick says he needs to be locked in a rubber room during taper time.)
Go out hard, when it hurts speed up...
