    LLoyd Clarke, a member of my local club, was killed near Lake Tahoe on 9/20 when he rode his bike into the side of a truck which was pulling out of a side road into his path...it is believed that Lloyd may have been riding too fast and couldn't stop in time....the driver will probably not be charged ....

    R.I.P., Lloyd.... you will be missed....

    Bill Wanzer, 69, of Norfolk, NY. Struck 6:18 AM Sunday, Nov 4, 2007, by a motorist who crossed into his lane on a curve. He had lights and reflective clothing, and was wearing a helmet. Some reports say it was foggy. The 31-year-old motorist has been ticketed for failure to keep right, and there is an ongoing investigation.

    He and his wife were both teachers at my high school in Massena, NY, where my father also taught. Bill taught biology, and I took French for two years from his wife Abby, who survives him. In later years, he and my mother have attended the same church, and in fact they were the scheduled ushers later that same morning. This is very sad for me. He was a heckuva nice guy.

    October 21, 2007:


    Two bicyclists were killed in an accident in Lancaster County Sunday afternoon.

    Lee Anne Barry, founder of The B.I.G. Ride, was taken to Carolinas Medical Center and died around 6 p.m., said her husband, Ben Barry of Waxhaw. She was 43.


    49-year-old Thomas Hoskins of Columbia:

    "Lee Anne was on the last leg of a two-month ride that began in Montana, raising awareness about brain injuries. Tom kept up Lee Anneís website, www.thebigride.org. Lee Anne did such rides every two years and Tom always rode with her, often from South Carolina to Florida on the last leg of the campaign each year."

    "Tom rode for twenty years, raising money for the American Diabetes Association and the Multiple Sclerosis Society, when he rode in the Tour de Cure for Diabetes and the MS Ride. Tom is the team captain for the South Carolina AT&T Cycling Team, formerly, the Bell South Cycling Team. Tom loved representing AT&T as a cyclist; he made sure he had AT&T Cycling jerseys for himself and his daughter Becca, when the name change occurred from Bell South to AT&T. Over the years, cycling was a family affair for the Hoskins. Sherry, Rob, Ryan and Becca supported Tom and rode with him. Tom completed the Assault On Mt. Mitchell in June. This was one of many pinnacles in Tomís life. In addition to God, and family, Tomís next love was cycling."










    Rest in peace.

    John Stenner May 16, 1994. Killed at a STOP sign by a 17yr old driver. 1992 U.S. National Time Trial winner. This guy would give the shirt off his back. I had only just met John and I had commented on his then new Softride road bike. He said, "It's yours for the weekend, see ya Monday". I rode a hundredfifty-ish miles that weekend. I remember it vividly. I mean...who does that? R.I.P.

    This is being disputed....seems the truck was coming towards Lloyd, up the hill, and truck turned left directly in front of LLoyd, who was descending the hill ..... driver "didn't see him", then turned into Lloyds path and of course, Lloyd couldn't stop in time.....

    Many, many people wrote in to the Lake Tahoe newspaper , questioning the local police dept's attitude towards this tragedy......automatically blaming the cyclist, when it looks like it was quite possibly driver error.......

    ...currently being investigated, I believe.....
