The hill won.

I bet this is the last time he skips church in favor of a bike ride!

Ironically, he had this hat on under his bike helmet. Luckily, he was wearing his bike helmet.

After his crash, he was taken to the hospital and was discharged a few hours later with a separated shoulder, a right side covered with road rash, stitches above his eye and a lot of “maybes” (i.e. maybe you have fractured ribs, maybe you have a fractured sternum, maybe you have a punctured lung). We went home until the morning, at which point he woke up and couldn’t breathe.

One collapsed lung later, he was admitted to the hospital.

It must be the pain meds making him smile.
