Spicy Roasted Squash Soup

We had friends over to dinner tonight. Our friend had a nasty fall off her bicycle and was knocked unconscious and came to in an ambulance, with no idea what happened. Her partner took the bicycle in to the store where they originally purchased it to try and figure out what caused the accident as she cycles on a bike path mostly and was not on a road.

Turns out, they told him the front basket worked loose, fell down onto the wheel and stopped her in mid motion. She landed on her face after somersaulting over the handle bars and luckily no badly broken bones, but face grazes, black eyes, body bruises and aches, a fractured upper arm, plus the side effects of concussion.

Please let this be a warning to anyone who cycles, these things can happen without any warning. Check your baskets or front carriers … or any loose attachments. Check your bicycles for any wear and tear, rattling parts or wheels and rusty screws, and strap or zip tie any attachments on.
