Life Has no Guarantees

Bruce Rosar was killed yesterday, apparently while executing a left turn. An excellent article covering him and his cycling philosophy may be found here.

Search ahead, verify clear. Head check to verify clear to move left. Move left. Search ahead to verify clear again. Initiate turn. Complete turn.

I feel a little better. Cycling was as safe as ever this morning, but it was a little less fun.

"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth, ... Put out my hand, and touched the face of God."

Cycling needs more such as Bruce.
