There will be a memorial bike ride (pedestrians welcome) at 9am on Tuesday, starting from Bronson and Queen, going east up Queen to the site where a cyclist was killed last week when she got doored.
There are various bike parades and mass rides held from time to time in our fair city. This would be a good one to make. Remember, 9am Tuesday. Or would you rather do some boring desk work or attend another useless office meeting? Get your priorities straight. Get out the bike.
I have a reason of my own to attend. In ’07 my wife got the door prize on Bank Street in the Glebe. She broke her two shoulders, broke her sternum (breastplate), 10 ribs broken (most three or more times), punctured both lungs, etc etc. In her case the passing taxi stopped inches before running her over, as she bounced off the hood.
She survived. She recovered. She will be riding with me.
