Ghost Bike Memorial Ride To Honor Cyclist Killed in Riva in August

Update: And another nice summary: 'Because the Driver Didn't Want to Wait 15 Seconds, My Kids Don't Have a Mother'
An article about today's ride

Sentiment of the day from Jerry Cunningham: 15 seconds. The time it would have taken for the van to wait for Trish to crest the hill. 15 seconds to save a life. A powerful thought in our go-go lives....

From: Trish Cunningham Memorial Rally And Ride

There were some requests for information on what hill where this happened. This is where the ghost bike is set up per my GPS displayed on Google maps.

And this is truly the most disturbing part of this fatality... the driver just could not wait a little bit till the road opened up to pass.On google maps.

It was so sweet to see a lot of her students, friends and family there at the event. If there ever was reason to make an example of a driver who kills needlessly this should be it.

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.
