Default Yet another cyclist killed. pH (Several, actually)

From the San Jose Mercury News:

It says pedestrian but the article says cyclist. And this was not even the one I was searching for.

Here's the one I was thinking of:

There was an article in the Santa Cruz Sentinel back in May about a cyclist killed around the Davenport area. There was *never* a follow up about who it was or the circumstances around the death--I even called the local radio station to ask that their news department please follow up on it and give us further information as it became available. Nada thus far.

If you want to knock off an enemy it seems all you have to do is wait until he's on a bicycle and then run 'im down....doesn't seem as if there are any consequences.

I just came back from that area and today the drivers have been particularly bad taking FAR closer passes than they should. I have to ride on the left hand side of the bike lane because too many people throw open a door without a glance.

Why would drivers with an open left lane not only drive adjacent to bicyclists but as close as they can possibly get: and speeding?


I ride close to the curb as possible too. Or I often ride the sidewalks where it is legal in my state.

It's mainly because of so many distracted and impatient drivers.

I ride with my outside handlebar overlapping the outer bike lane line. In some cases I take the car lane if there are problems with the bike lane such as roots of trees causing bumps of the lane being filled with leaves so that you can't see dangers such as pot holes or boards of the like.


I have to dodge a lot of glass both in the bike lane and sidewalk.

We have street cleaners, but are lucky if they come once every couple of months.
