Subject: St. Louis isn’t too bike friendly lately
St. Louis has one of it’s major interstates closed pushing a ton of cars
onto surface streets and they aren’t playing too nice.

Subject: Another cyclist hit
My friend’s boss, who rides centuries for fun and does all those crazy
endurance events, was struck last night when a car made a left turn right
into him. It appears that the cyclist had the green light and was
completely in the right.
My friend has asked that I not include his name, but it happened here in
St. Louis and the resulting injuries are a broken hand and hip.
These kinds of situations are well beyond the “broken record” phase. When
will drivers actually pay attention and realize that we have an equal right
to the road?
I may not know who he is, but I wish him well all the same.by
