Another ride participant here. My thoughts are with this downed rider. My best wishes for a speedy and full recovery.
Although I didnt see the accident I can understand how it happened. I have to agree with other comments that safety was not an important factor in the ride. I lost count of the bikes on the streets with no lights or reflectors. I counted at least 12 riders with no helmets. There was no uniform intersection control. It was always guess-work on the part of the rider as to how to handle each intersection we came to.
