Rider Down – Jake Hiance

On Tuesday, June 23rd Jake Hiance was involved in a crash while cycling on Linwood Avenue in Cincinnati. 

Jake loves to ride. On June 23, he was riding one of his usual routes through Cincinnati when he was suddenly cut off by a truck pulling a flatbed trailer. This caused him to lose control of his bike and fly over the handlebars and underneath the trailer. The trailer dragged him across the road until the truck stopped.

Luckily, his helmet saved his life, and he suffered no head trauma. However, the left side of his body wasn’t so lucky. An ambulance took him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, and he was admitted with a broken collarbone, shattered wrist, four broken ribs, and severe road rash. The hospital is still evaluating the full extent of his injuries.


As cyclists we understand that this scenario could happen to any of us, and hope to be able to support our friends and fellow members of the cycling community as they may do the same for us. We are hoping to raise money to help Jake with his medical treatment and rehabilitation. Thank you so much for any amount of support!
