VIGIL FOR VICTIMS IN TUCSON

150 Cyclists en Masse

And yes, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is a bicycle advocate. Excerpts from an interview with Ms. Giffords during her re-election campaign posted on the Tucson Velo website:

…”when her friend Chris Nakamura was killed by a motorist who received only a citation for the crash, it was a huge realization that the laws needed to change. When she was in the state legislature she worked to make the penalties stiffer for hitting a cyclist….Giffords says bicycling is a critical part of urban infrastructure. She says she biked a lot while getting her Master’s degree in planning at Cornell and that bike and pedestrian planning is an important part of urban planning. ..She also wears bright clothes, a helmet and uses lights to help keep her safe….”

We wish you a speedy recovery and the chance to curb violence of all stripes
