VCH should now publish stats on % of medical treatments from VCH residents compared to other health jurisdictions.
How do they normalize the injury stats considering people from all over the world are coming here to bike, not to mention the thousands who think, "that looks neat I want to try that".
Comparing injuries at the WBP to biking on the whole is fruitless. Lowering the injury rate at the WBP isn't.
Anyhow any people are hurt alpine skiing? And how many are hurt playing hockey? And how many are hurt playing football? And how many are hurt when their rented orange Lamborghini bounces off the barricades and catches fire? Life is risky. We pay health premiums and taxes to obtain medical treatment when we require it.
WB will have the stats on FA/MA on snow compared to dirt. Take that info and put it into injuries/100 users/rider day and we have something to compare off of.
Except that imo saying "slow down" will get push back. "Ride within your limits" I think resonates better with the average schmo.
:lol: @ their cover boy wearing minimalist knee protection.
Many of us have all read on here or heard from a friend about how fatigue or over-zealousness resulted in a crash.
Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:
ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.
