Sad News

I am always distraught at the news of fellow cyclists’ deaths.  This one hits very close to home.  While I don’t know James well, and have only dealt with him briefly at the Share Bike shop in Roanoke, I wish him greatest condolences for the loss of his brother, Bruce Rosar, killed yesterday by a car in North Carolina.  http://www.cyclingnews.com/editions/first-edition-cycling-news-sunday-july-12-2009 

It was only 10 days ago that we lost a cyclist in Blacksburg.  Ride safely, everyone.

Tomorrow, I meet with James’ colleague Ron McCorkle to discuss possible sharebike/bikes not bombs efforts in our locale.  Afterwards, mijas and I are traveling south to Damascus to get away from the commuter-life in Roanoke.  Yes, we are driving a car down there (cars for escapes are in my rules), but will park, camp, and bike commute to and fro, 40+ miles in trail time in a couple of days with kids, camp, swim, and generally love summer vacation.  Updates to follow.
