As I mentioned in the previous post, a memorial and dooring education event is planned for tomorrow, Friday 10/19, at Oak and Wells - the location of the recent dooring death mentioned in that post. This is in memory of Neill Townsend, who died on 10/5 due to dooring at that location, and Clint Miceli, who died 4 years ago 1 block away, also from dooring.
The memorial will last from 8:00 to 8:30 a.m. We will hand out flyers about dooring. After 8:30, there will be a Ride of Silence to the Loop in their memory, and the memory of all dooring victims.
If raising awareness of the hazards of dooring and working to improve bike safety matters to you, please consider joining in this grassroots effort if you are able. I hope to see you there.
Wishing you safe travels.
