Lance Armstrong tweeted yesterday
"I hear my good friend and Colorado Governor Bill Ritter had a bike crash and broke some ribs. Gov, be careful!! Get well soon."

And BikeDenver reports on Ritter's bike crash, apparently he was riding with others when his front tire caught of edge of the cyclist in front of him. The result is some road rash and broken ribs. Get well Gov.

One of his riding buddies who was on the ride with him at the time was quoted saying, "He rides a road bike," Dreyer said. "And may need to be riding a newer road bike after today."

Any bike shops want to jump to this opportunity to fit the gov with a new bike?
