Hawaii is a scenic State with many bicycle trails. There is plenty of good biking in Hawaii; however there are many areas where bicyclists are injured while biking through winding trails and roads and over high and steep terrain. The Honolulu Advertiser newspaper web site recently reported that a bicyclist was injured near Kaena Point when he crashed into a 20 foot ravine. He may have suffered a fractured limb in the incident. The man was riding with a group of other bicyclist at the time. He was later airlifted via helicopter and then transported over to an ambulance to be taken to a local hospital.
It is unfortunate that the bicyclist was injured. Many bicyclist who are involved in such incidents even lose their lives or suffer permanent debilitating personal injuries.
