    Why don’t you people in cars and SUVs slow down!!! LOOK FOR BIKES!!! I am afraid to drive in my car going to work everyday because of how fast and rude people are!! They only care about themselves!!

      Stupid to give this a thumbs down. WEAR A HELMET! Sorry for this loss of life, and sometimes wearing a helmet doesn’t save you, but it’s better safe than sorry! Used to ride too! Always wore a helmet or else I didn’t get to go with!
