My wife, Patty, has been in training for a 700 mile Bike Ride across Michigan in September. It's a 7 day ride called, "Ride4Life". Her goal is to raise $5,000 for the Lakeshore Pregnancy Centers.
Tuesday she was doing a training ride in the rain, when her bike tires hydroplaned and she wiped out. She fell off of her bike, and hit her head so hard that it actually broke the helmet. As you can see, it shattered the plastic on the top of the helmet and broke it in two.
Can you imagine what would've happened had she not been wearing a helmet? Other than plenty of cuts, bruises and a banged up bike, she had no serious injuries. And yep! She's back in training for her big bike ride! You go girl!
