boudreaux, also known as 'sydney' and 'biker billy' on other fourms (real name Jim Price), one of the most prominent contributors to the equipment sub-forum was killed in Denver CO the other day while riding his bike by a 17 year old motorist who was sending a text message! :(

sadly this is all too true.....

and having recently returned from Denver CO and been on the same stretch of road at a similar time of day only weeks ago...OUCH, Denver, like many cities , especially Melbourne is still quite a bike town, with a huge network of trails and bike paths, and many bike lanes marked on roads....sadly also like Melbourne it has a high incidence of driver inattention which culminates in loss of life....

Jim Price you will be sadly missed..... thank you for giving us your thoughts , help and guidance on matters bike.... JIM PRICE .....RIP
