Acquaintance is victim of Hit and Run, left on side of road

My sisterís husbandís brother is a cyclist. He is a daily commuter in Winston-Salem, NC and was in a hit and run incident last night. Heís unconscious and in ICU. A super concerned lady saw his bike lights and him lying on the side of the road, stopped, called 911 and stayed with him to the hospital.

Here are links to the story and a video of him talking about riding. Heís what Iíd call a pure rider. One of the officers that responded used to ride with him on weekends. Iím hoping traffic cameras will reveal who hit him.

Iíve known Robert for almost 50 years. He is a really tough guy and might just need all that strength to get through this one.



Ride your Ride!!
