    Portland (and messengers): Kristine Okins RIP

    Thought I'd post this here as some of you are from Portland and some of you may well know Kris(tine) Okins, a Portland messenger. She was in a bad bike accident on Friday and she passed away yesterday.

    She and her boyfriend were headed for the Worlds. Sadly that isn't happening.

    She was a close friend of a friend and he's created a site in her memory.

    Condolences and well wishes:

    Man, this has been a rough year so far. Portland is such a bike friendly city, but I guess accidents can happen anywhere. Be careful out there, guys and gals.
