Ride for Heart - Aftermath

I raised $330, so the ride was a success. It was great fun too; I'll probably go back next year.

I witnessed a pretty crazy accident along the way. A peloton of 15-20 riders doing at least 30 km/h was traveling down the opposite side of the highway from me. A man somewhere in the middle of the pack fell for some reason and a few bikers behind him fell over him as well. I didn't stop because there were hundreds of people around, and because I had seen many paramedics during the ride. Half an hour later when I made it back the location of the crash, I found that the man was sitting at the side of the road under an emergency blanket with some of his peloton mates. It was pretty disturbing.
