    Yesterday, Ken was moved from a regular hospital bed to the Rehab Center at the hospital for physical, occupational, and recreational therapy. He still has limited use of his arms and hands and is in pain finding it difficult to sleep. He continues to have a positive attitude. He will start in earnest with the therapy this morning.

    For those of you who have asked about visiting him, he welcomes those short visits: Asante Hospital, Room 6366 (two rights from the elevator). They lift his spirit. Thank you.

    Hi Ken,

    I'm a brand new member from the SF Bay Area. I spent last week riding with the club and loved it. I culminated my week by doing the Up and Down ride with two other club members.

    I really enjoyed the camaraderie of the club and the peaceful nature of riding in the Ashland area. Given the bucolic area I was shocked to hear of your crash and wish you a speedy recovery. Maybe we'll get to ride together the next time that I'm up there.

    Best Wishes,
    Stu Berman

    I was so sorry to learn of your accident and very sorry to hear that the fellow who caused it got away. I'm glad to know that you're starting rehab. That's always a positive sign and I think it will feel good to start actively working on your recovery. The day will come when you will once again be out riding. I'm sending positive thoughts your way for a smooth and fast recovery.

  • Dennis Cramer

    Oh Ken
    SO sorry to hear about the unexpected incident, which created an unexpected end to your ride!!
    Am thinking of you, rooting for you & sending prayers for your speedy recovery.
    You are a true role model to many riders, "silver century" and otherwise.
    Sending cyber hugs your way, as the real deal would hurt to much at this stage! :D
    Your fellow bike rider,

    Hi Ken- wishing you a complete and speedy recovery. After a bike crash almost exactly a year ago, it felt like I might never be back on my bike. Hope you can stay patient and hopeful during these early weeks of recovery, and you will be back on the bike sooner than you think.

    Best regards, ed busby

  • Shari Kathol

  • Buck Eichler

    7/29/2016 at 12:44PM

    Ken, you are one of the safest of us all, and this is such a tough break, but I see you are already back in the saddle, though stationary for awhile. That is an inspiration.
    We are praying and hoping for a quick and thorough healing process.

  • John Burns

    Sorry to hear about your accident. Best wishes for a steady recovery.

  • Virginia Jensen

    7/30/2016 at 5:34PM

    Ken, it was so sad to hear about your shocking accident -- you're one of our most safety-conscious riders, and the Greenway is supposed to be a "safe" place for cyclists to ride. Best wishes for a faster-than-predicted recovery! Your Slo-Mos will miss you and we all look forward to the day when you're back in the saddle again.


    7/31/2016 at 5:36PM

    I was shocked like so many others to hear of your accident. I know you have a positive attitude, which means everything as you proceed with your recovery. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Maria Geigel

    8/4/2016 at 7:12AM

    I always thought of the Greenway as safe, at least compared to riding on roads. Well, that premise is out the window now. Best wishes for speedy recovery.
