When asked about the alleged ice-throwing that led to his crash, Rev Phil said,
“People who are actively throwing ice and debris in the path of people who are traveling 35-40mph on a kid’s bike…that’s going to have consequences. I want everyone to remain calm and recognize that retaliation is not necessarily what we want right now.”
Doctors have performed surgery on Rev Phil’s leg and have inserted metal plates to assist healing. He will be on crutches for six weeks.
Rev Phil’s “Kickass Biking” movie night is still scheduled for tomorrow night (8/23), 7PM at Free Geek. This is a repeat of a popular show and organizers will be accepting donations to help with Rev’s hospital bills and recovery.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
