Staying Safe on the Trail...

Contributed by the Capitol Riders BCH Chapter in Olympia:

Recently there was a bike/horse collision in the Capitol Forest. Both it seems were moving fast and both were approaching a blind corner from opposite directions. No major injuries, but the horse rider did have to get 15 stitches on the face. The horse sustained no injuries but the bike rider was pretty shook up. Moral of this story: Remember that most of our trails are multi-user and to ALWAYS expect the unexpected. Don’t approach blind curves at high speed no matter your chosen mode of transportation.
