Lake Shore accident on Thanksgiving Day

Someone I know, though not terribly well, had a severe bicycle crash on the lake shore path on Thanksgiving Day, resulting in a brain hemorrhage; he's still in the hospital. Apparently he crashed into a wall and got hit on his forehead below his helmet. He's a regular and experienced cyclist, and I know he wasn't doing anything foolhardy. Being a regular user of the same route, I'm wondering what happened, but haven't been able to find any information online. Has anyone else encountered or…See More

"Maybe Dave Glowacz, Mr. Bike? glow at mrbike.com. He wrote Urban Cyclists Tips and Tricks, a great resource for cycling in cities, specifically Chicago. "

I'm an editor for Chicago Review Press, and we are publishing the U.S. edition of a book that just came out from Random House in the U.K. entitled Cyclopedia: It's All About the Bike, written by William Fotheringham. This is a fun bicycling encyclopedia primarily covering two areas: bicycling as a sport and the history and parts of the bicycle. But it has a lot of other interesting entries, including Sex, Drugs, Literature, and Dogs. (Considering this morning's commute, I was sad it doesn't…See More
