Does anyone know the female bike rider who was struck by a police officer last week?

Can put me in touch with the victim, a 29-year-old (the CPD told me; the Tribune reported she's 17) female who was biking west on Jackson and Hamlin on Tuesday, June 14, at about 7:30 p.m.?

Was curious if you were going to lead another Perimeter Ride this summer. If so, when?

Hi John- I am so sorry I missed your friend request back in October regarding the Midnight Circus show/Time Out article- BUMMER! I will definitely keep you informed the next time I am using my bike for anything fun and circusy...

If memory serves, today may have been the first time we've well met. I've long appreciated your contribution to the cause of bikes, anticipated meeting you, and was not disappointed.

Hello John, Will you be planning a Michael Jackson tribute ride? Or at least a little song?
I hope so!

Glad you could make it John - I think there should have been a prize for "sweetest ride" because you would have won.
