Weekend Update
Filed under: unfortunate events, people
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 1:40 pm

I’ve mentioned Ken Y. a couple of times.  He’s on the Rivendell list. He used a Quickbeam to ride the Trans-Iowa, and has been using the same bike to run up an amazing string of commute-to-work days over the past year. This is not some wimpy, SF Bay Area commute like I have.  The guy has to deal with serious Minnesota winters. It’s been awe-inspiring and more than a bit humbling to read his postings.  And he just keeps on commuting.

Well, until yesterday, it seems.  Looks like he got tapped by a car on his Friday homeward leg. 

Not a lot of specifics, but it seems to be part of a rather disturbing trend in that state.

His blog is here, and it might be nice to drop a comment or wishes his way.  My personal belief is that his string continues - it shouldn’t be broken by events such as  this.

    Thanks for the kind words Jim.

    I’m feeling miserable. Happy to have come home and able to tell about it, but mad at the circumstances. I am sure it will be hard to be patient while waiting to be able to ride again. Fortunate to be able to ride again. I knew that it wasn’t going to be me that gave up on sticking with the tough commutes.

    A sad end to the ownership experience of a great bike. Ridden very hard up to the end.
