    Rider injured off trail in Marin

    Anyone know the rider or how he is doing?
    The article says he fell of the Wagon Wheel Trail slid and landed on some rebar. That is the one trail owned by the county.

    Wow. That's really too bad. I hope he's ok. Sounds like the rebar did him in after falling. I wonder if he would have been alright had it not been for the rebar?

    Hope he heals quick, sounds like a nasty injury! My go to park has some exposed rebar. Makes me want to pack my 1lb hammer and pound them flat.

    You could get some rebar caps. Or tell the property owner.
