Simon's rep explained that Simon was “trying this new bike,” when he felt and landed on his back.

"He was in shock and in massive amounts of pain."

"Some good advice... If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time," Simon tweeted.

"I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages."

He concluded by thanking the hospital staff who had been taking care of him since the accident.

"And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone."

Simon's rep told *Page Six* he "went with him to the hospital and has been allowed in briefly to see him. He’s doing okay in the circumstances."

We're wishing Simon a speedy recovery!
