Biker Down

Bicyclist dies after being struck Saturday
A well-known Upper Arlington bicyclist died early this morning of injuries he received when a pickup truck struck him on Saturday.

Steven Barbour, 58, was riding west on Cemetery Road in Hilliard about 6 a.m. when the truck hit him, said Hilliard Police Lt. Charles Scalf. The truck was also going west and struck Barbour from behind.

Police arrested the truck’s driver, Edward S. Miller, 28, on a charge of aggravated vehicular assault. That charge likely will change as a result of Barbour’s death, Scalf said.

Scalf said Miller took a breath-analysis test. He would not release the results but said alcohol played a role in the crash.

Barbour was scheduled to lead an organized ride on Saturday in Union County and was traveling there when he was hit, said Gail Falkinburg, 68, of the East Side, a longtime friend. He often led rides and often rode his bike long distances to get to those rides, she said. Source: dispatch.com

As always, our heartfelt and deepest condolences to his friends and family.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Yeah the fucktard driver claimed the cyclist popped out of an intersection into his path, when he hit the dude in the middle of the block. On the street he claimed the cyclist popped out of. The bastard was so drunk that he didn’t even know what street he was driving on, after blowing a little over 0.10 BAC.

    Beat the guy with Campy 11 speed chains (narrower, takes off more skin) and then stomp his nads to strawberry jam. Then let a platoon of cyclists stomp his hairy ass until he ain’t got one no more. The only reason he didn’t hit-and-run was because he couldn’t he was too drunk to leave the scene…

    And if I sound bitter and vindictive your fucking right! I am bitter and vindictive, and brain damaged and permanently scarred too. fuck him in the ass with a 12′ pipe (diameter) for killing a cyclist that was just riding his bike in the road. Then let him die without any painkillers.
