My in-laws were riding their bikes to a weekly time trial last night, when my mother-in-law had a big crash. They were going down a large hill on the bike path next to the road, and she hit a lip of pavement between a side street and the path. Her back tire blew out and threw her over the bike at speed.
They sat in the emergency room for a couple hours last night before Mom got x-rays. She had pain in her neck, a possible broken collar bone and some bad road rash on her shoulder.
This morning, I’m happy to report that she did not break any bones! She’s going to hurt for a while, but it’s just going to take time to heal.
I’m so thankful that things did not turn out worse!
