    Because someone crashed, it's somehow connected to a party last night?

    Yeah, but bicyclists crash all the time, and if you're in a big group when you crash, it's easy to find a bad place to land.

    Do not interrupt argument with rational thought. No place for that at all.

    If you read the article he is 68 years old...I think the much more likely scenerio is that he was riding in a pack and lost control.

    more than likely but if youve seen the ragbrai parties, you know that there plenty of people that age that are drinking right along with the younger people as well
