      Hi,

      I have been cycling since 2007.  I started right after I lost my father.  The new friends that I made helped with the greif and the excercising was great too.  I have learned that this is a much loved activity.  Here in Columbus, Ohio we have a great cycling community and many of us are members of Columbus Outdoor Pursuits and Consider Biking.  

      On July 18th one of fellow cyclist’s (Steve Barbour) and enthusiasts was killed by a drunk driver.  We all love getting up really early in the A.M. on Saturday and ride out to this great place for breakfast in Plain City, Ohio.  We all ride afterwards and is a big high point to our week.  This has left us all with a horrible taste in our mouth because Steve was hit at 6:30a.m.. This is the second bike rider that I know of that was hit in the very early hours in the A.M. after someone’s night at that local Bar.  The first was a Doctor who was riding in TOSRV and now Steve.

      This is very angering because both cyclist’s were alone.  This is any human beings greatest fear as a cyclist, pedestrian or fellow motorist.  DRUNK DRIVERS!!!!  Both of these men lost their lost lives way too soon.  

      I really think people need to wisen up to the fact that there are cycling communities and there are cyclists on the road and we have every right to be there.
