Re: Bastrop Trails Regular Saturday Ride

As with any accident I usually ask for permission before posting. With Respect CJs permission here are some pix and a quick video of both Ryan's and Ricks's get offs. I got a hold of Rick and his Wife Kathy through Jeff's help.

Re: Bastrop Trails Regular Saturday Ride

In about 8 minutes our day unfortunately went bad quickly. Fortunately all will be well I'm time. Rick and his Wife Kathy thank all of you for taking such great care of Rick and for getting him to safety.

Here's a quick vid of the start of the ride up to the get off.

Re: Bastrop Trails Regular Saturday Ride

Wow two simultaneous crashes. I was fixated on the first crash with injury and almost missed the second one at base of Slippery Hill. Was that 4jranch?

Just got a text from "psittacid" AKA Rick and he's doing well. If he needs anything well give him a helping hand.

Looked like a blue bike and you have been seen in hi vis jacket before.

Keep them feet up on the pegs guys much safer there and they don't work too good on stopping the bike anyways.

Absolutely.. Also when you are on your way to meet the dirt, depending on the circumstances of the fall of course, keep your hands on the grips and let those expensive bars and barkbusters work for you..

Re: Bastrop Trails Regular Saturday Ride

Bummer guys, heal up fast Rick.

Bastrop claims another. My buddy busted his elbow this time last year in there. I haven't been nearly as many times as some of y'all but I can for sure say that the landscape in there keeps changing and new ruts pop up and disappear all over.

Stay safe.

Hi guys,

I'm doing okay – seeing the orthopedic doctor tomorrow. I'll be surprised if I don't need surgery.

Every time I think about Saturday the first thing that comes to mind is how coolheaded, skillful, and careful or you guys were who got me out of there. I keep telling friends about a group of people who I had never met treating me like family.

PS I've been trying to give up on that "stick your leg out to get stability" thing. This'll teach me a lesson!!
