I just read on another forum that a young man, 21, was struck and killed about 7 am near the top of dump hill as he rode eastbound. I'm sad for his friends and family. I'm also angry this is happening with such frequency here in OC and So. Cal. in general.
"This morning a friend of mine was hit and killed while riding his Road Bike on Santiago Canyon Rd by a hit and run driver. Joey worked with me at Two Wheels One Planet in Costa Mesa for about a year and was currently working at Jax in Irvine. He was 21. Joey was a really good road cyclist and one of the safest riders I know of. The woman who hit him fled the scene but we were told she was later caught. I don't have a lot of information about it right now but Joey will be missed. Be careful out there!
