Mancos mountain biker dies in biking accident

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CORTEZ, Colo. * Authorities say a Mancos man killed in a mountain
biking accident on Monday near Cortez was the victim of a tragic
accident.

The Durango Herald reported that Steven Ludemann, 66, died while
riding the popular Phil's World trail system east of Cortez.

Lt. Detective Ted Meador with the Montezuma County Sheriff's Office
says Ludemann was an avid mountain biker. He said the cause of the
accident was unknown.

Meador said the accident took place on a steep dip on the trail. The
coroner conducted an autopsy Tuesday afternoon and said the cause of
death was serious injury to the spinal cord. Ludemann was wearing a
helmet.

Why the mention of the bicycle foam hat?

Mountain biking is routinely dangerous whereas hiking is not. It is
interesting to read about hikers coming to a bad end, but it is not
interesting to read about mountain bikers coming to a bad end. That is
because all mountain biking accidents are pretty much the same. See the
movie "Gerry" to know what I am talking about.
