GRAND JUNCTION, COLO. — The State Patrol says a pickup truck driver accused in an accident that seriously injured a cyclist near Gateway has been issued a summons alleging careless driving causing bodily injury.

Troopers say 29-year-old Jenny Daubendiek of Boulder was riding north on Colorado 141 on Sunday when the pickup tried to pass her.

Troopers say 73-year-old pickup driver Vernon F. Brock of Grand Junction encountered oncoming traffic and steered back into the northbound lane, striking the back of the bicycle. Daubendiek was thrown about 50 feet.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
