Celebrity chef Gordan Ramsay was hospitalized last week after a bike ride in New England. He shared the news on his X-Account in a public reminder of the importance of wearing a helmet.

“An important #FathersDay message from me… WEAR A HELMET!” Ramsay tweeted on Saturday.

Ramsay was in Connecticut at the time of the accident, he said in the tweet, and was being treated for his injuries at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital in New London. In a video accompanying the tweet, Ramsay shared that he was still in pain and showed off a huge bruise across most of his left hip.

He thanked the doctors, nurses and staff for their care after the accident, but added that he was “most grateful for my helmet, which saved my life.”

“Honestly, I'm lucky to be here,” Ramsay said in the video. “You have to wear a helmet. I don't care how short the ride is. I don't care that these helmets cost money. They're essential.”

The Hartford Courant reports that Ramsay has been spotted multiple times in Mystic, Connecticut, to film two seasons of Hell's Kitchen at Foxwoods Resort Casino, the location of one of Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen restaurants. Several restaurants in Mystic have shared photos of Ramsay's visits in recent months, according to CT Insider.
