Daily Roundup: Tough grrrl, Fat Cyclist—Fat Fundraiser, Shipping your bike for holidays, Wrongful deaths & more

In Bicycle advocacy, Daily Roundup, Mountain Biking on December 11, 2009 at 2:08 am

Any of us who went through puberty know that 16-year-old girls are the toughest, strongest, orneriest creatures on earth. So here’s a mountain-biking version who did an unintentional 90-foot huck and lived to tell the tale, when she’s back up and around anyway.

It also helped that she’s Scottish of course. Said the Welshman.

Have you been watching what’s going on over at Fat Cyclist? I mean, $100,000+ in less than 3 days???

Taking your bike along on holiday travels? You’re a fool, you know. Here’s BikePortland.org to wise you up. I may well take my bike on my holiday travels. It will be on a Thule rack atop my car.

Giant’s CEO on bike sales during the Great Recession (or Double Dipression as I like to call it): They ain’t as good as most execs will say.

The wrongful death suit is turning into a pretty good weapon for families of cyclists heedlessly run over and killed by negligent drivers (many of whom aren’t even cited). Usually they’re settled, and with good reason. No court is going to side with a driver who just wasn’t paying attention enough to avoid snuffing out someone’s life.
