I am bumping this thread back to the top as I think it deserves a more attention. I would not usually do this, but I think that our old friend sydney deserves a little better from us.
If a moderator sees this, I would think it may be appropriate to cross post Kimberlee's message to other sections of the forum. Thank you for that.
As you can see by reading all the posts, there was to be a segment to be aired on Good Morning America this coming Monday morning. But, for some unknown reason, it got cancelled. Anybody that rides a bike should be upset over this.
Fortunately, Kimberlee, Jim Price's daughter, has provided us with the email address of someone at GMA that we can all send a note to. It's probably a good idea to keep it polite and try to state some good reasons why you think this piece show make it to air. Try to be a good representative for the cycling community. This is not just for bike mechanics, but for anyone who rides bicycles.
For newbies on the forum ....
We formerly had a member that posted several thousand messages on this forum, and most of them were in the Mechanics section. He was a tough guy on people who did not have their facts correct and kept a lot of people in line with reality. Jim Price, known on this forum as "sydney", was an avid biker and an extremely knowledgeable source of information. In a very tragic incident, Jim Price was killed while riding his bike. He was hit by a car, driven by a young man who was busy checking his text messages and attempting to drive at the same time. This could happen to anyone who rides a bike and this is a chance to both honor Jim's memory and possibly educate someone and save lives.
Please take a few minutes and send a message to the email address provided by Kimberlee and let the folks at GMA know that you want to see this piece on "Distracted Drivers" shown on national TV.
Thanks for your time. Please send that mail.
sydney, old friend, we miss you.
