...and way too many others who have been injured or killed in
this past year...
City of IRVINE, Orange County, California
To HONOR those who have been injured or killed
To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here
To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD
Thank you all for attending;
parents, widows, widowers, children and friends of
several injured and killed riders;
BCI, OCW, Trail Angels, Paramount, OCRR, Team in Training,
SHARE, & 3F were all well represented.
The Irvine Police provided an escort,
which allowed the peloton to move down Alton
in a single group; at 2 a-breast we still stretched a long block
& once on the trail back we were
able to enjoy the stillness and setting sun.
Coverage: OC Register day after "Riding in Mmeory..." &
week after "Pwer of Community" (including link to KOCE's Real Orange TV coverage)
to post their comments, share with each other, and post links to photos, etc.
Time: 6:30-8:30pm (Ride at 7:00 pm)
Where: Irvine Civic Center
In IRVINE - Orange County California (one of 272 confimed rides)
Route: Flat 9.7 mile loop around Irvine; on-street bike lanes and off street bike path:
Repeat of the 2006 route run East on Alton with several regroups then return on the
San Diego Creek path so we can fully regroup by the time we get back to the start.

a unique ride which will bring increased awareness to the streets of our home towns -
focusing on the numbers of cyclists who are killed and injured
by motorists who do not safely share the road.
at the flag poles in front of the Police Department
then cue up for a 7 pm slow paced, single file, silent commemoration
to the riders who are no longer with us,
especially those who were disabled or killed on the road.
Come over after work - if not commuting, (it is Bike Commute week!)
there are facilities to change clothes for he ride.
we hope to share this hour with each other,
and know thousands across the planet will also have marked the hour;
but also raise awareness among the many Irvine motorists
who will be witnesses of our parade.
& have plenty of reflectors & lights if you have them...but if not,
the end of the ride will down the off street San Diego Creek pathway...
Please wear an arm band; Black - or Red if you have been injured by a motorist.
Inexpensive head / wrist band sets or cut up tube socks work well.
