It's a reminder. What could be more on topic in 50+ than forgetting?

Considering the ridiculous number of cyclists killed and injured where I live, it seems weird that our ride of silence is organized by the mother of a teenager who was killed while jaywalking in front of a school that didn't have a school-zone reduced speed limit sign (and still doesn't). The city reworked the roadway to provide a safe crossing for pedestrians but left the substandard, at some places one foot wide, bike lane untouched. Not to diminish her loss, but it is a bit like having the American Cancer Society run an anti-war demonstration. There's a connection, but it isn't the strongest one available.

I guess she had to do it when none of the more appropriate groups would.
