Other Info: Riding up Mont Ventoux in 2001 was awesome and my most memorable bicycling event so far during the short time since I started bicycling in Spring of 2000. My dumbest and worst experience? One day riding the Yough trail a kid jumped in front of me with his bicycle. Pulling the brakes I sailed over the handlebar, over the kid's bike and hit the ground. The damage? Three broken ribs! It hurt but I grit my teeth and rode another 22 miles from Ohiopyle to Confluence and back. My chest did not stop hurting. Two days later the doc examined me. He pushed right on a broken rib upon which I started singing the National Anthem, ran him over, causing him to get a head wound from a lamp screen. Well, also doctors get hurt once-in-awhile.
