Dear Mayor: Take Note of Cyclist Death

In a stark contrast, cyclists are featured on the front page of the Seattle times today as part of Mayor Nickel’s plan to fight global warming and a cyclist dies from the injuries she sustained in a collision with a van.

My friends are close to the cyclist and they’re all devastated – I’m devastated. I gave her husband a ride on Bettie last week at a Schooner Exact Brewery party.

There’s a memorial ride planned tomorrow from Westlake at 5:30. I’ll be out a town visiting and old friend who suffered a heart attack, but pay my respects here, wish the family well, and hope our Mayor also notices that we also need safer streets in Seattle.
