Default The Joys & Pleasures of Cycling on Trails

“As far as I can tell, the mountain bikers are totally silent on the
subject of these horrific accidents, and what they imply about the
danger of mountain biking. Am I wrong?


Injured mountain biker airlifted to hospital

Saturday, 4 January, 2014 - 10:51

This morning (Jan 4th) at approximately 9.30am the Nelson Marlborough
Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the scene of a mountain bike
accident in forestry near Thorpe in the Motueka Valley. A 66 year old
male from the area crashed while riding, landing heavily, sustaining
injuries to his ribs. The rider was assessed by the helicopters
onboard intensive care paramedic before being flown to Nelson
Hospital for further treatment.”

It was no doubt well worth a few broken ribs to trespass on a trail which
was meant for hikers, not bikers. Once this fool has healed, he will no
doubt be back to try his luck again. Maybe next time he will succeed in
killing himself. That would be good riddance to bad rubbish!
