After my bike decided to pick a fight with a wooden bridge on the Bear Creek Greenway trail, the emergency response from Ashland was exceptional.

After my bike decided to pick a fight with a wooden bridge on the Bear Creek Greenway trail, the emergency response from Ashland was exceptional.

Numerous citizens stopped to help, especially Linda Cook, and the paramedics and police were quick, professional, generous and helpful. At the Ashland Community Hospital emergency room, Jason and Dr. Brian Phelps provided exceptional service and my injuries are healing nicely thanks to them.

I don't recommend crashing a bike anywhere, but if it has to happen, I can't imagine a better place than in Ashland. Thanks to you all.
