Mark your calendars! Together with her friends, Bike Lafayette is organizing a memorial ride for Roxanne Richard, the woman killed riding her bike on the I-49 access road in October 2011. Link to article about accident here. The ride will take place on Saturday, May 12, 2012, with short (25 mile) and longer (50 or 62 mile) routes, SAG support, t-shirt, and post-ride meal. We're working to get flyers out and online registration up soon.
Thanks to everyone who came out for the Reality Check Ride yesterday in a show of solidarity with the BR community around it most recent cycling losses. Thanks to Rivals for donating a portion of its profits from post-ride customer purchases to the cause. Click here to see KATC coverage
