my first attempt on ISH

Postby ryanb56 » Thu Jun 26, 2014 3:45 pm

Went and rode Ish a few weeks ago. The result was a broken helmet a badly sprained shoulder and a bad contusion. Great trails but definitely stay off If your not an advanced rider!

You're not the only one. Our friend Jeff had a pretty good "ops" there too.

Mine was at Swope on a jump. Fractured hip crest, partial rotator cuff tear, minor concussion, broken helmet, lots of integrated dirt road rash and cuts. Rough stuff but I couldn't wait to ride again. So... I was on the bike a week later :)

Get well man! Don't let that shoulder get cold. Get it moving as soon as you can. Crap happens sometimes and we learn from it.

Pretty sure there's a sign at the top that says ADVANCED LEVEL/WARNING/etc.

You just have to stay to the left (beginner line). You still have to be ready for the jumps, but it's not like the big lines.
Bike racing is good. The people you meet, the struggles you overcome, the highs and lows, the downhills, the finish lines. Bikes in general just make us better people. -Cameron Chambers
