Why An ER Visit Can Cost So Much — Even For Those With Health Insurance

Hey Team! Happy Monday. We hope you all had a great weekend.

Here's a good read for today on why accidents are so expensive. Something to keep in mind while we ride, because #crasheshappen.

https://www.npr.org/2019/03/13/702975393/why-an-er-visit-can-cost-so-much-even-for-those-with-health-insurance

npr.org Vox reporter Sarah Kliff spent over a year reading thousands of ER bills and investigating the reasons behind the costs, including hidden fees, overpriced supplies and out-of-network doctors.

How about this photo?! U.S. Army soldiers, Buffalo Soldiers, riding their bicycles on an 800 mile patrol in 1896!

#BlackHistoryMonth

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” Albert Einstein

In 1896, the army embarked on an ambitious plan to embrace the bicycling craze that had been sweeping the nation. Lt. James Moss of the 25th Infantry (one of the four Buffalo Soldier regiments) led men on a harrowing 800 mile round-trip from their post in Fort Missoula, Montana to Yellowstone National Park. It was the first time the U.S. Army utilized this type of transport. Though the trek was filled with danger, challenges, and broken equipment, it was ultimately deemed a success. The army, however, decided not to implement the bicycle for many reasons, including that the bicycle was still being tested and the country was on the brink of war with Spain. The 25th, pictured here, would be sent to Cuba in 1898 to take part in combat during the Spanish-American War. Their bicycles remained at home.

The Buffalo Soldier played a key part in the development of the national park system by serving in many critical roles in the western United States, including protecting some of the first national parks. Learn more at https://www.nps.gov/subjects/buffalosoldiers/index.htm

P.S. If cycling in a park today, remember to stay on designated paths.
