Sea Coast Century Accident

Dear AdventuRiders,

It is my very sad duty to report that there was a very serious accident on the Sea Coast Century ride today. A car veered across the center line and hit a group of bicyclists killing 2 of them and injuring 3 others. 

The only possible consolation is that Donna and I were miles away when this occurred. We finished the 100 miles in 6:52 with an average speed of 14.4 MPH. We didn't find out about the accident until after we finished, so at least we had a good ride and were elated that we completed 100 miles.

While the bicyclists involved apparently did nothing wrong, its still a good time to remind AdventuRiders that bicycles ALWAYS lose to cars and trucks! So please take a few minutes to read our Safety Reminders with more seriousness because the last thing we want is an injured rider. I will be stressing the more important rules on upcoming rides.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but let's at least learn from it.

Bill (and Carole)
