Sadly... another cyclist killed

Sadly, another member of the Bay Area bicycle racing community has been killed by a motorist, this time by a drunk driver (already toasted by noon when the rider was hit). RIP, John Peckhman.

Here is a memorial page from John's team, Alto Velo.

What should be a safe sport is amongst the most dangerous, only because of errant, careless and rude drivers, and poorly maintained roads. We need better laws and bette, more deliberately focused road maintenance on all the usual Bay Area cycling roads.
