Cyclist Killed in Ballard

Kevin Black, an Alki-Rubicon team member, was killed today in an accident. My Ballard has an eye-witness account; the Seattle Times and SeattlePI both reported the incident.

Sadness and our thoughts to the family and Seattle cycling community.

Update

The SeattlePI updates it coverage with more details about the accident and Kevin. There was an impromptu memorial last night and it made the local TV news.

New reports and comments indicate that Kevin was possibly right-hooked while passing a van. The van driver was not identified and reportedly distraught. The local community rushed to help Kevin.

Kevin previously raced on Wines of Washington, the team Bike Hugger races with, and will be greatly missed. Bike Hugger received many reports on Twitter and in email about the accident and heard the Seattle-area racing community’s distress.

A fellow cyclist and racer leaving behind 2 daughters is especially difficult and we’re all feeling it and sharing condolences with the family.

Memorial Ride
