Rose Long accident and recovery

Hi everyone,

Probably many of you know about this already but I thought we should spread the word.

For any of you who have raced ECCC before and have noticed a kick-ass female UVM rider steal it in the front, you know who Rose Long is. Unfortunately, Rose was recently seriously injured in a hit-an-run accident while commuting on her bike in Burlington. She sustained multiple injuries as well as extensive oral damage, both of which will require long-term recovery.

Although you might not know her personally, I highly encourage you to visit the website her family/friends have set up for her at and take the time to read her story. Feel free to send her get well wishes and thoughts because - as anyone who’s ever gotten into an accident will tell you - there is nothing like encouraging thoughts headed your way to speed up recovery.

It’s a crazy world out there; ride safe.
