What is a broken body part, or two, when out on the bike?

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Downhill riding likely has a few more dangers attached.

“I have been in Vancouver and rode the North Shore and they have some great drops. 

I did a 15 foot drop on this with no issue. I also broke my hand that week. I’ve had concussions and stuff. I wear a helmet when I am doing the extreme stuff, but not when I am just street riding.” 

 Photographer’s notes: Cyclists seem to have a very dismissive way of discussing boken limbs, scars and other injuries. 

Matter-of-face additions to the conversation where the medical issues are a side-bar to the fun that was had.
