I came across this gentleman on the fire-road. Hope he is doing ok.

Once again, this was on the fire-road and not the technical trails DrDan refers to.

Howgreenwasmyvalley, for reference, the search and rescue vehicles were able to drive up to within a few hundred feet of the victim.

This is the definition of frivolous. This lady falls off her bike and now wants to blame the city/county? Are you kidding me? Doesn't take a genius to realize that if you ride your bike through water, it's going to get a bit slippery. Same concept in a car when it's raining. If you ride a bike, you're going to take a spill eventually. Some get it worse than others, but it just comes with the territory.

I consider it a privilege that in SB we still have natural creek crossings that break up the unnatural roads. It's part of what makes SB beautiful. Please don't allow your urbanized New York mind to poison the landscape of our city. Consider your fall a lesson learned in bike handling and leave it at that.

As far as your medical expenses go, I hope the publicity you gain through the independent will help you cover those. Maybe you can set up a paypal account for people to make donations to. I’ve got a few bucks to send your way once it’s up and running.

Please reconsider your planned actions though. Realize that a creek crossing is representative of much more than water on the road. Realize that you’d be fighting for the dissolution of the little bit of freedom we have left in this ever increasing Disneyland town.

You neeed to proofread your articles a little better. The piece is filled with typo's and incomprehensible sentence structure. Please try harder. You get paid to do this.

A few Clarifications and Corrections:
1. These events are in no way associated with a rave. I haven't seen anybody using E or jumping around to techno between races.
2. Jonny was never taken to the hospital in an ambulance
3. Matt is not from SB and hasn't been trying to organize the fixed gear community for 3 years.
4. Who is Firn? Does he ride in SB? If so What up!? If not, why is he in this article?
5. This one is for Sizzle: What exactly does "too cool for brakes mean"? I know pretty much everyone who rides a track bike either drives a car, or rides a road or mountain bike, all of which are equipped with brakes. I guess I don't understand your expert analysis of the mind of a fixed gear rider. Further, accidents will happen to anybody who rides a bike in the streets eventually. It has nothing to do with the type of bike one rides, it is simply the nature of the game. If you would like examples look up the recent incident in Mandeville Canyon or the drunk driver who swerved into a bike race near the US/Mexican border. So please, before you make an even bigger fool of yourself, think before you type and realize its pretty inappropriate to use a cyclists death as a witty remark in an attempt to boost your online ego.
