When my daughter did an endo on her bike after coming down a hill, many years ago, her front brake malfunctioned and locked up her front wheel. A witness on the street said she landed on her head and left shoulder. Her helmet cracked in half on impact, and was held together only by the outer plastic coating. She had severe road rash on her left shoulder, a broken left thumb and swelling on the face, but no head or neck injuries. She stayed overnight in the hospital for observation but then went home to recover in less than a week. I dread to think what would have happened to her if she had not been wearing a helmet.
What do you call a cyclist who sells potpourri on the road? A pedaling petal-peddler.
