Cycling Geelong member, Geoff Andrews, was injured recently when participating in The Great Victoria Bike Ride. It’s good to know that, despite facial, neck and chin injuries, Geoff is up and about again.
Dr. Ian Davidson, Director of Emergency Services on duty looked at my cycling helmet & said it saved my life. Thankfully I was only travelling at 20 kmph when a small stick flew up & went into the spokes of my front wheel so head first over the handle bars into the tarred road on my chin.My sun glasses broke & went into my nose!
I am very grateful for superb nursing care for 5 days in the Neurological Sciences Ward at The Epworth Hospital in Richmond Melbourne.
The evidence is there. You bike helmet may save your life one day. Don’t leave home without it.
