Riders Down: A Bad Week In Cycling

by editors on October 5, 2012

Here is a list of the stories we’ve seen in the last week in which a cyclist was killed by a motorist.

Cyclist Hit & Killed On Sunday Morning Ride
Cyclist Killed By Hit & Run Driver In Bushwick
Bicyclist Killed in South East Portland Crash
1 Cyclist Killed, 2 Injured In Mariposa Township
Victor Cabedo Killed During Training Ride
17-year-old Driver Kills San Antonio Cyclist
Cyclist Killed By Hit & Run Driver On Queens Boulevard

The aspect we find most frightening about these stores is that the drivers are rarely charged with a crime. It’s almost as if cyclists have the same value under the law as house cats. It’s remarkable.
