BIKE TO WORK in a White T-Shirt
Sylvia Bingham, age 22, was killed while riding her bicycle to work in Cleveland. She grew up in San Rafael, California and went to Terra Linda High School.
Tuesday morning bike to work in a white ‘t-shirt', this Memorial safety ride will happen on the 1-week anniversary of her death. We do know a lot of people ride their bike to work. There is a very active bunch in San Francisco and Marin. The hope is that we draw attention to the bicycling commuters, and at the same time, make it a public 'everybody' event, instead of just a Cleveland (where she was killed) and Terra Linda (her home town) event.
We were hoping that you might broadcast this note to the bicycle riding community to let them know that on the 1 week anniversary of her untimely death, there will be a bike to work wearing a white t-shirt as a memorial ride for Sylvia to draw attention to the problem of a lack of safe commuting options of cyclists. Anything you can do to help is appreciated. A web site, http://www.sylviabinghamfoundation.org will be set up shortly. Please do something to encourage bicycle street safety as a way to remember her. http://mpjc.org/
