10/31/12 R.I.P. Cyclist Leanid Belabarody '53' "You are not forgotten". Honoring the memory of the little known cyclist death on Halloween in 2012. Leanid was right hooked by a truck from Indiana at the N.E. corner of Augusta and Ashland at ~10am. He was perhaps returning from a shopping trip in the triangle area. This cyclists' death has been quietly remembered. His memory needs only to be honored by all, riding safely. Thank you. +

We can stay here and get the shit kicked out of us, or, we can fight our way back, into the light, we can climb out of HELL, one inch at a time.

Because limits, like fear, are often just an illusion.
