This cyclist was planning on descending Los Gatos Road in Temecula, California to reach speeds of up to 60+mph. The particular road has a maximum grade of 24%, it is super steep.
After deciding he could not recover the bike from the wobble, the cyclist moved to the shoulder of the road in order to minimize the impact of the crash. He fell on his shoulder and sustained a broken collar bone.
This crash could have been much worse if he had not worn a helmet. For those afraid of steep descents, make sure to climb the hill first and inspect the road for imperfections. It is always better to be safe and get to know a road before giving it your all.
Comment on this card if you have any tips for new cyclists who may be descending down steep hills!
