Thu Aug 6 2009 (Updated 08/18/09) Memorial Bike Ride Calls for Respect from Police and Drivers
Santa Cruz Memorial Bike Ride on August 16th August 7th, 2009 marks the two year anniversary of the death of John Myslin, a high school teacher who was run over by a truck at the intersection of Bay and Mission. Several months after his death, on April 8th, 2008, another experienced cyclist, Chris Rock, was run over and killed by a truck at the same intersection.

The City of Santa Cruz Public Works Department and Police Chief Howard Skerry have expressed opposition to proposals that would improve conditions for cyclists along the Mission/King corridor, according to People Power, a local bicycle advocacy organization.

A memorial bike ride took place on August 16th. Cyclists met at 11:30am at Bayview Elementary School (near the Corner of Mission and Bay) and rode on Mission and King Streets, in group style, while respecting and being considerate of other street users. imc_photo.gifRead more and view photos
