Fatal Collision

There was some saddening news in Toronto this week, as you are probably already aware. Another cyclist has been killed, and it was by a large truck again. Information is limited, and the Star giving out plainly wrong information hasn't helped. Tanya has been sifting through conflicting details.

Many people are focused on whether the cyclist was riding on the correct side of the street. As Martino pointed out on his site, "either way it's very tragic". I agree with that wholeheartedly, and at the same time, I think it's very fair for us to be concerned over the details, since all of us want to do what we can to avoid a similar collision, and be reassured that our cycling techniques are reasonably safe. After this story is heard by people we know, many of us will have to defend the very idea of cycling once again to our friends and family.
