In November, I was riding solo on my mountain bike at Volkswagen Nature Park when I crashed. The next thing I remember was standing in the road and seeing an ambulance coming for me. The EMT told me that three other riders had seen me down on the trail, then one of them rolled my bike as we all walked one mile to the road for my ambulance pick-up.

Several days later I called the 9-1-1 center to see if I could get the name and phone number of the biker who called them for help. Rink Murray was the rider who called for the ambulance. The other two riders were Joe Falco and Stevie Ray Dallimore.

All three guys went out of their way to assist me, and are to be commended for their actions. Thanks guys!
