Gen. Z Speaks - My Story

Read My Story


I have been an avid mountain biker for years, but up until 2021, I never experienced how painful a biking emergency could be.

But it wasn’t just the pain that I remember most. A year after the accident, I still recall the bitter frustration of being ripped off at a time when I needed help the most.

It all began during one of my regular cycling rides with a friend on a trail in the Bukit Timah area.

For some reason, I messed up a simple roll-down on some rocks, causing me to fall from my bicycle.

I dove headfirst into a rock and the resulting impact cracked my helmet and gave me what was arguably the worst headache of my life. 

For a few seconds, I blacked out, not realising what had happened. I was bleeding profusely from a cut on my forehead, and also broke my left wrist while trying to cushion my fall.

My friend had the good sense to bring along a plaster, which helped staunch the bleeding to a certain extent. Together, he helped me hobble my way to a rest area along the trail and to call for an ambulance
