Public Service Announcements on Bicycle Safety

June 26th, 2015

I was very pleased to hear a PSA regarding bicycles and cars sharing the road on 96.3FM today.  It came on around 11:45am while I was driving home from an appointment.  The PSA was produced by NDOT as a part of their Zero Fatalities campaign.

I tried to find it on their website, but cannot locate it.  I did find on YouTube however, a nice video produced by the RTC with Ron Floth as the bicycle safety host.  In this video, I also spot BLV Members Karen and Steve Nichols.  Nice job everyone!

Safe Cycling in Nevada

Thank you to the RTC and NDOT for producing PSA’s on bicycle safety and road safety.  I agree….

ZERO FATALITIES!

Ride for Roger Swain - Saturday 6/27/15 at 6am

June 24th, 2015

I’ve been on vacation on the East Coast so I haven’t had time to get the word out about this, so please accept my apologies for the last minute notice.

Ride for Roger Swain

Our dear friend and BLV member, Roger Swain was recently in a very serious car accident while commuting home from his work. For those of you who don’t know him, Roger is a mechanic at the McGhies West store.  He has worked on my bike, along with many of my cycling friends bikes.

He was traveling East on Sahara, West of Tenaya when a driver turned and collided with him.  Roger was in the right of way, but the driver just didn’t see him.  His injuries were pretty scary…suffering from a broken neck!

Fortunately, Roger will be alright, but there will be months of healing and recovery.

Members of the cycling community are coming together and riding for Roger this Saturday, the 27th to help raise funds for his hospital bills.  If you’d like to participate in the ride, details are:

SATURDAY - JUNE 27th  6am
START LOCATION:  Lifetime Fitness in Summerlin on W. Charleston
10721 W Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135

ROUTE:  Not sure the exact amount of miles or where they’re going, sorry everyone.  I read something about it being the Blue Diamond Loop and then maybe adding another 30 miles.  The important thing is you don’t have to do the full ride if you don’t want.  If you just want to make a presence at the start and offer up a donation for Roger, I’m sure he would appreciate that.

If you cannot attend the ride, but still want to make a donation, you can do so on the GoFundMe page set up by one of Roger’s friends here:

Roger… we are pulling for a speedy recovery for you and are very thankful you will be ok.

Everyone… please be safe out there on the roads!
Lisa
