We headed as much as the beginning, and took off up Gilroy Scorching Springs street, a fantastic mountain journey.

On the way in which again, I began to show onto Canada street off of Gilroy Scorching Springs street. That’s the very last thing I bear in mind till waking up with somebody asking me questions. Apparently I had slipped on some gravel on the junction and went down, hitting my head, and was out for five minutes.

This was out entrance of the CalFire station, so my buddies didn’t even need to name for assist, the firefighters got here working out. The CalFire paramedics verified I used to be coherent, bought my wounds stabilized, then bought me on the backboard and fitted with a cervical collar. They shifted me to the ambulance gurney. My buddies waited with me whereas this was happening. Subsequent I used to be transported to San Jose Regional Medical heart, the closest trauma heart.

The Proper facet of my helmet displaying the influence. It is a MIPs helmet, which eliminates rotational movement of the mind throughout influence, lowering the probability of mind harm. That is the one kind of helmet I’d put on, and it did its job

At Regional they took a Cat scan and it got here again regular, so no critical head trauma. I had a extra extreme laceration on my face which bought super-glued, every thing else was minor owwies that I’ve to maintain clear. That knee bandage on my proper leg was simply masking a bunch of miscellaneous minor scrapes. So I bought to go house, with directions to keep away from bicycling (or some other contact sports activities) for a number of days, and observe up with my main care doc. This might have been so much worse, I’ve scrapes on my arms so apparently caught them out to brace myself as I used to be falling. That might have simply resulted in a collarbone break. And my abrasions have been minor in comparison with critical street rash.


  • Select rides fastidiously
    • Sirrus (skinny drained street bike) is for easy street rides solely
    • use solely vado (bike with fatter tires) if something however a easy floor (in fact, this can’t all the time be predicted, we thought yesterday was going to be on easy street floor, however the county is busy repaving these roads).
  • cut back quantity of motorcycle driving, crash hazard is proportional to time on street.

After all, crashes can nonetheless occur, but it surely’s good to take measures to reduce the hazard. At present I’m on the mend. The principle symptom is a minor headache and a few abrasions. All’s properly that ends properly!

At house and on the mend
