I dont' know if this is the right forum, so I thought I would start here. Yesterday in a group ride we had a cyclist go down. The accident happened fast: one moment she was cycling, the next moment literally she was sprawled face down on the pavement. (The cyclist is going to be alright. She had abrasions on her face. An ambulance took to the ER just to make sure). At first we thought she simply lost control, or maybe her wheel brushed against some raised pavement. But, after she left, we examined her bicycle and saw that she had a broken spoke. We then theorized that perhaps the spoke broke before she went down and got caught in the fork, causing her front wheel to stop cold, and then forcing the bike to do a 360. This would fit with the suddeness of the accident. Has anyone heard of this type of accident before? I have been cycling for 35 years and have never encountered such a string of events. Thoughts?
