“Come for a ride” they said, “It will be fun” they mentioned.
They had been right.
Earlier this spring, a range of my pals and colleagues at the KGH emergency department had been meeting up for a working day of mountain biking at Smith Creek, a well known bike park in West Kelowna.
Under the promise of “lots of effortless trails for beginners”, I loaded up my bike in the pouring rain and headed to the trailhead, asking yourself what, exactly, I experienced dedicated myself to.
I experienced explanations for issue. Biking is a sport with nearly religious devotion within our office, with many converts sporting new and amazing injuries regularly—bruised shoulders, lower up lessen legs and shins and even the occasional broken collar bone or rib fracture. And that is to say very little of all the biking accidents we triage and treat on a typical foundation.
