I know many of us dirt roadies exist, sad to pass this news as this is the 10th bicylist killed in our area in the last 6 months or so...

As a rider who does hundreds of miles on the road every month I hate seeing these stories.Almost every ride to and from work I have a close call even though I strictly stay on the sidewalk now.Ignorance and plain ole stupidity on my part at times and the drivers part at times make bike commuting a dangerous way of life.I often wonder how my wife and kids will react to "the news" after a driver almost takes me out.My heart goes out to the family of all the riders who have died doing what they love!!
Be safe out there.
