The man hit the edge of a railroad tie on the Serpentine Trail and went over the handlebars, suffering impact on his side and face, said Captain Bill Rivera of Marin County Fire.
"His nose was bloody and he had possible broken ribs on his right side, so we C-spined him and sent him to Marin General (Hospital)," Rivera said. "We treated for the worst and hoped for the best."
