Ride of Silence Wrap Up and Launch of Video Campaign!

It feels good to be a cyclist this morning!

We are still buzzing from the CHS and CLT Rides of Silence last night.  Great turn out in both cities, with many riders showing up for their fifth straight year.  Riding in the streets, in mass, in silence, is such a powerful experience.  Especially when you realize that thousands of people are doing exactly the same thing, at exactly the same, all over the world.

In Charleston, the scene was particularly powerful because our route took as past the ghost bike for Edwin Gardner.  Some gulped, I saw two saluting, others had tears, some others smiles of great memories.  Here’s the CHS groups assembling:


The after-parties put the C in community.  The best bike folks I know were in my backyard enjoying the fellowship (and beer).  In CLT, Ann reports having a blast, being a part of terrific group of diverse, committed, passionate folks.   Here I am with Jana:

 

For me, the highlight was finally showing off the Safe Street Save Lives PSAs.  I was excited to finally unveil the campaign.  On a screen in backyard, over 100 friends hooted and hollered and applauded at all the right times!  Filmmaker Ryan Cockrell got his share of pats on the back and thanks for the energy and creativity that he and Ethan Jackson gave to the project.

AND EVEN BETTER NEWS TODAY!  In 25 minutes, at 10 am, the SSSL campaign goes live on the web.  Click here http://safestreetssavelives.org/ to check it out and get involved.  There is much more news to come.  We are just get started!

Don’t forget about the Bike2Work events tomorrow in all cities everywhere.

Cycling friendships are wonderful benefit to our sport and community.  A major part of our work as bicycle “accident” lawyers means putting a value on losses that our clients suffer as a result of injures from crashes. When it comes to past and future medical expenses, lost income and other financial losses, the job is […]

Last week a bill called the “Victims’ Fair Treatment Act” was filed in the North Carolina Senate. If passed, the bill would finally bring North Carolina into line with all but 3 other states by eradicating this deeply unfair law. […]

Dooring of bicyclist

Buena Batiste did not plan to be “doored.” She was knocked off her bike by a car door and then yelled at by the woman who opened it. Fortunately, we were able to take Buena’s dooring case to trial and win. And in doing so, we set a new precedent for bicyclists who suffer a […]

This includes the importance of signaling your intentions when you are turning or changing lanes. Across the United States, bicyclists are required to use signals to let others know what they plan […]

As a Minneapolis-based attorney, I live, work, play and bike in the city. Although my city might be known for its lakes and our infamous Juicy Lucy, Minneapolis’ dedication to having safer streets for all should be included in that list. To reach the safe streets goal, numerous non-profit organizations and groups are working tirelessly […]
