    Sorry to hear about your good friend.

    Activities like bicycling & horseback riding become much riskier after 40 or 50. Even minor falls are much more likely to result in serious injury.

    A friend of mine (in his early 70's) likes to ride motorcycles - both dirt & street. He was proceeding after stopping at a stop sign, going about 5 miles/hr. when he drove over a small puddle of water. There was some algae on the surface of the street that he couldn't have seen & the bike slipped. He landed on his shoulder & needed surgery to repair it. In his 40's, he fell of dirt bikes many times without much injury.

    Almosty the exact same thing happened to my aunt, about 15-20 years ago (fell off bike, head injury and stroke). She has never fully recovered, mentally. She functions, but more like somebody with alzheimers.

    That is very sad.

    I use to think that helmets were pretty dorky. . But now I would not even ride my razor scooter without one. . .

    Just found this post. Extremely and profoundly sorry to read of your friend's injury. I have been riding bicycles since 1998. I've had a couple of crashes... due to blown tires, etc. And... once I got knocked down by a truck. Happily... no serious injuries. But now I will be wearing a helmet and pads. Bones, etc. don't heal so well once you get past fifty. Will keep your friend in my thoughts and prayers.
