From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article:

Local bicycling leader Jeff Littmann died on Tuesday from the injuries he suffered when a car hit him on a training ride in Waukesha County last week, a spokeswoman at Froedtert Hospital confirmed.

The well-respected racer and owner of Attitude Sports in Pewaukee was riding eastbound on Wisconsin Ave. with Lauren Jensen when a car struck both of them from behind. The driver, Kyle Dieringer, 25, of Nashotah, told sheriff’s deputies the bright morning sun blinded him, and he didn’t see the bicyclists until after he hit them.

The crash remains under investigation. The Waukesha County district attorney’s office will consider issuing charges or citations.

My 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. This is just horrible. Two in one day. They want us to stop riding. They want us to think it’s safer to drive. But if the “Driver down” list was made, you wouldn’t be able to keep track.
    Am I next? How many more?? Is this combat??? Why????

  2. “they” don’t even give us a second thought unless “they” encounter us…they‘re generally too self centered…& yes, all of this needless loss of good humanity is horrible…
