Up first is a link to updates on the court case against a driver accused of killing a cyclist. Preliminary hearing scheduled in Santa Cruz cyclist’s hit-and-run death I’m sorry for those that feel this is being dragged out, but there is a procedure that must be followed if we want this driver to go to/stay in jail. If there are any shortcuts taken or corners cut, he gets off no matter how strong the case against him.

Cyclist hit in CA. CHINO HILLS: Cyclist killed when struck by car LEO still have not even finished their investigation as of the posting of the link, so I can’t tell you what to do to not end in a similar situation.
LifeStyle! in CA. Injured veterans on road to recovery Someone was rude enough to obscure the directional markings on the road which sent the riders without GPS on a slight detour over a few extra hill, or as randonnueres call it “bonus miles”.
And that’s all I have today.
