    Thank you for writing this, and for naming those who lost their lives to this terrible incident. May we continue to ride on in honor of them.

    Very good, Caley. Thank you.

    Really good post Caley. Lets remember those 8 names

    Same week we lost Rob Dollar in PHX heading down one of the most use training climbs by cyclists South Mountain Summit road. He was killed by a drunk and high teen at 10:30am in the morning. Not a couple days latter a mother of 2 was run down on a sidewalk by a impaired drive while out for her morning jog at 4:30am. Needless to say it has been a VERY sad week

      What is often overlooked is that what is unsafe for a cyclist is also unsafe for a runner/walker/pedestrian. As road users we need to stand together!

      Indeed.

      In the piece linked below, Eben Weiss, who writes the BikeSnobNYC blog, makes the same point. He points to the numerous cyclists who have been hit riding by run-of-the-mill motorists all over the place. In particular, he mentions Eric Ng who was killed in 2006 on the same bike path and in the same block that Sayfullo Saipov used in his attack. People have asked for barriers ever since, to no avail. Maybe we should thank Mr Saipov because in a matter of hours he got the barricades installed that have been futilely requested for years.

      One could say lock the barn door after horses have been stolen twice but I suspect nothing would have happened had Mr Saipove merely been drunk.

    Ride, ride, ride. Invite your buds to ride. Hug those you love and care about. If we do that, it’ll be a whole lot better no matter what weird/bad/confusing sh*t happens.

    Beautiful piece, Caley

    Thanks.

    This is hard to read… because its so true.

    I’m on the opposite coast, but it hits so close to home.
