I was riding really mellow woods saturday, following my son ( I let him go ahead so I can see what he's doing and where he goes) he's 13 and learning.
I ducked a branch but didn't see the other one behind it, a broken stump that smacked my helmet protected forehead. It was a good hit. Without helmet I would have had stitches for sure. I was not going fast.
