Crash 1,Crash 2,crash 3 ,you're out!!
Went on a ride this morning.My new ride buddy crashed 3 times.The first crash,he was behind me not sure what happened.He said he didn't see me. (??) We were cruising through a twisty paved path.I think he was coming up on me tried to avoid contact and crashed.He laid on the path stunned.I helped him up ,no blood but road rash.His helmet which he wears too loose in my opinion,was scratched up.His forehead corner had a layer of skin missing.I think the loose helmet slid on his head wth impact.I checked him over he said he was OK and off we went.I slowed the pace rode about 45 mins,checked in with him he is OK.There is an obstacle on the path I dismount walk around it.He decides to go through and crashes.He is up right away, says he is good.10 mins later,I slowed down for a sharp right turn.He misjudged the turn and off the path he goes crash 3.I said stay here I'm getting the car.Now I'm worried he hit his head harder than we thought.He insists he is having a bad day wants to continue.I let him lead and set the pace and I'll watch from the rear. We make it in one piece to the car.I see mistakes in his riding style which I could point out.I feel awkward explaining to a 50+ rider how to ride but I guess I'll have to before he kills himself.How was your ride today?
