In this world of reliance on the automobile and the ever-decreasing space for bicycles on our roadways it is always sad to hear about accidents involving cyclists. It is particularly sad when it happens to a teammate and leaves them in critical condition. Unfortunately ABRT member Ashley Halsey was involved in an accident this past weekend while avoiding a collision with a car. Although Ashley is in critical care after fracturing his second vertebra, he has been fortunate not to have suffered any paralysis and is alert and awake. He has been placed in halo traction with surgery scheduled for earlier today.
We wish Ashley all the best in his recovery and won't it be a great achievement to see him cross the finish line of Ironman Arizona this Fall......apparently he has already spoken of getting back on the bike :-)
Our thoughts are with Ashley and his family...
- With group rides being off the table for the foreseeable future (my own personal choice) it's been fun to spend some more time on the #specializedshiv Time to think of an epic ride to do. . . . . #iridespecialized #specializedfans #IFB #parvillacycles #timetrial #swimbikerun #ironmantri #cyclinglife #triathlon

- Searching out some local gravel for a recovery hour this evening......Bowie Racetrack was perfect! Dead flat, no-one else around, zero cars. 128 furlongs of easy riding. . . . #parvillacycles #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #bowiemd #IFB
