Hello!  I was riding my bike on a nice fall day, and I was probably going a little bit fast. When I was going down my driveway, the front wheel of my bike started to wobble. I didn’t know what was happening. My feet came off of the pedals and the bike twisted and turned, and I knew I was going to crash. And sure enough, I was right! I crashed next to a big bush.  When I started to get up, everything was a little blurry, and I saw a lot of blood on the ground. My toes were cut very badly because I was foolishly wearing flip flops. (This part was from my Dad.) One of the brake handles was broken off, and my bike was scraped and beat up. I started to feel pain in my left wrist. The pain felt deep! My Dad said it was probably bruised, and put ice on it. The next day, it only felt worse. We went to the emergency room, and I found out my wrist was broken. My toes still hurt really badly, too. When we got home, my dad and I talked about wearing the proper gear for riding a bike. Flip flops are not allowed.  We looked at my helmet, and I was upset that it was scraped up so much. Dad said the helmet saved my “nut” from getting cracked. He also said I couldn’t use the helmet any more because we can’t be sure that its OK. Now, I was REALLY upset. My brother gave me the helmet the previous Christmas, and I love that helmet! How cool is the watermelon?!  I have recovered, my wrist is fine, my toes are almost healed. Dad repaired my bike and I will be ready to ride when the weather gets warmer.  So, I wanted to thank all of you at Nutcase for making a helmet that saved my life! It has been the one piece of safety gear that I always wear.  Sincerely,  Camille
