A Somber Note to Start The Week

This is a sad story. I never got to meet this colleague, but he worked for the same employer as I, at the company's Kamloops facility. Another account provides a few more details about the severity of this accident.

This really hits close to home for me. It serves as a tragic reminder that we're never far from a similar fate as we begin to hit the local roadways with the dawn of a new cycling season.

Be vigilant out there! I pray we all have a safe 2009.


  1. I sure hate reading these kinds of things, but the potential for tragedy is the specter that hangs over any ride isn't it.

    A good reminder to be careful.

  2. This is a tragic story - most of us can imagine our families in this situation. I don't know about others, but this serves as a reminder to be careful, and I wish I didn't need to be reminded...
