Last night a recently famous local rider was critically injured when a car pulled out from a stop sign in front of Joshua.
He was riding with a few others yesterday evening.
Joshua started a riding group largely with the use of social media, and it has grown to many cities in WI. They often do rides to meet up in Chicago with 'chicago united', etc.
There have been some critics of the group, but by and large, it has overwhelming success and growth.
Many have T shirts, stickers, caps, etc. with the logo.
This is the main face book group page:
Lately, WMGR has been doing ride meets on Tuesday nights in Milwaukee. Taco Tuesdays
Tonight- we met- about 80 of us and rode to the Hospital where he is in the ICU- critically injured.
I have heard the extent of his injuries- I'll sum it up as critically injured.
We had called ahead, and the security of this large hospital system were ready for us and allowed us to ride up to the top floor of the main parking garages. Everyone was cool, no one rev bombed, etc. We showed respect and they were hanging out with us on the top of the parking garage- no problems or drama.
We all signed that large card you see there, and they'll put it in his room.
Please pray for our injured brother, his long term prognosis is not good. Godspeed Joshua Hoeft
