Many of you probably know about the tragic cyclist and truck accident last night on the road to Saranac so I'm not going to go into what ride, the reasons why, or who was fault, or the names of those involved. I wasn't there, and it doesn't matter now, and I don't think it's appropriate to try to be a news source here. I do know the guy involved in the crash and have ridden with him several times in the past. A really nice guy. I don't know if that makes this any sadder than it is since I wouldn't wish something like this on my worst enemy.

He's reported to still be in critical condition right now. Let's say a prayer for him and be thankful that even more of our friends weren't involved. Keep us posted if you hear anything - especially if it is good news. The local news tends to drop stories like this after they get their first headlines so we'll probably have to do it ourselves.

While his bike doesn't look good, from reports I received from riders on the scene it was supposedly smashed into little pieces - it just shows you how hard it is know exactly what happened in horrible accidents like this - even it you're there. Let's hope everything and everybody is in better shape than first reported. 


  1. Horrible news and tragic accident for a really nice guy. I feel bad for the cyclist and the driver involved.

    Sounded like Medi-Vac did their job and got him to the hospital. Hoping he pulls through.

  2. I heard a report that he's now stable, but in a drug-induced coma for safety's sake. Sounds like better new, I just wish I confirm it. Let's hope it's true!

  3. I've heard the same...maybe from the same source. He's alive which is good news.
