Tough break for Jerry today... while riding along Bear Valley Parkway at the back of the group, he crashed, and banged himself up enough to get the paramedics to bring him to the ER at Palomar Hospital in Escondido. He's since been able to get on FB and posted the following:
I've got abrasions on my face right side and back upper right. My neck is a little stiff face is a bit sore but overall I think I'm ok.
Everyone had the same question: What happened? Since Jerry was the last rider, we don't have an eyewitness, but speculation is that he may have hit something in the road and lost control. One thing was certain: his bike got messed up badly. Well two things: he's going to be really sore for awhile.
No coffee stop today!
