The next Fuji Otaku post (July 4th) included this awful photo. You can't see him too well but that's the author face down on the right. Unfortunately the author suffered a broken collarbone, broken ribs, and an injured vertebrae. The other rider involved ended up in intensive care. The Tommasini is a total loss. You can read all the details on his blog.
My reason for posting this is to remind everybody not to get too complacent while you're out riding on your local Multi Use Path. Sure, you don't have to worry about cars on the MUP but there are plenty of other dangers lurking out there, kids, dogs, walkers, and native wildlife (skunks, squirrels, and armadillos). Oh, and buy a bell. Make your presence known when approaching walkers and other slow moving trail users.
