Shortly after 6 a.m. this morning, Gov. Ritter was involved in a bicycle accident at 23rd Ave. and High St. in Denver . He is being treated at Denver Health Medical Center for several injuries. It appears he has multiple rib fractures on his right side.

The Governor rides with a group of friends two to three times a week, and this morning was with a group of four other riders when he and another rider collided. The Governor is in good spirits, laughing and joking with hospital staff and his wife Jeannie.

Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong heard about the governor's accident and talked about it via Twitter: "I hear my good friend and Colorado Governor Bill Ritter had a bike crash and broke some ribs. Gov, be careful!! Get well soon."
