Daily Roundup: Searching for red van, Facebook violence, BikingBis hits 6-0, 72-year-old cuts back

In Bicycle advocacy, Daily Roundup, Mountain Biking on January 4, 2010 at 7:56 am

Police are seeking witnesses to reckless driving — injured cyclist accident near Redmond. Police are looking for a “newer red Honda Odyssey.” Someone out there knows, time to step forward and do the right thing.

And there’s a TV report. Note that one of the riders has a seat cam but apparently wasn’t using it on the ride. This may be one vital defense cyclists have in the never-ending battle with two-ton behemoths.

Deserving of further investigation: Facebook page encourages violence against cyclists… If you’re on Facebook you can tag the page as inappropriate.

Sixty-year-old guy celebrates birthday with 60-mile ride. Congrats to Gene Bisbee of BikingBis blog fame, looking forward to great things for 2010…

No worries, Gene & us other sextagenarians have lots of rides ahead of us. Here’s a mountain biker who at 72 acknowledges cutting back on the jumps and hucks (can’t afford to crash as much!).
