You were the three bicyclists who left my friend on the curb after crashing into her! It happened on Mother's Day on the sidewalk to the bridge on Hamilton Avenue by the detour on the Santa Ana River Trail. You gave her some ice, then went on your merry way. A Good Samaritan came by and drove her back to her car. She drove herself to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a fractured patella and multiple contusions. You broke the unwritten code of biking: Never leave a rider down.
