We just received word that a cyclist was involved in a hit and run accident this morning on the Rickenbacker Causeway. We don’t have all the facts, but it appears a truck hit the cyclist. The cyclist is in stable condition with multiple facial fractures and severe swelling, bruises and cuts. The cyclist was wearing a helmet.

We will follow this story very closely and provide more details as we receive them. We hope the cyclist has a quick recovery.

More to come…

    It looks like DecoBike will be the game changer I suspected it would: 30,000 uses in its first month. Now, presumably that’s uses and not separate users–one person could use it many times a day–but that’s an awesome figure that says this is really viable and could/should be expanded to other parts of the county.

    I look forward to a day when car lanes all over the county are turned over for bikes, esp. if they have a protective barrier from the cars. That’s when it will be much more safe to ride.
