NYPD has a strange response to the murder of a bicyclist

RIP Matt Von Ohlen

Police are currently looking for the driver of the black Camaro who knocked Von Ohlen off his bike then ran over him, then sped away. If they find him/her, may give him/her a bike safety pamphlet.

RIP Virginia Murray, First bike-sharing fatality

Tragic and horrible.

Ben Serotta designed the new Citibikes

Interview on Streetsblog:

How do you think the new bike design will affect the customer experience?

Folks know me as the maker of high-end custom bike frames. This new project has allowed me to design a bike that’s custom-made to suit everyone.

All of the thought and planning that went into the new design will hopefully mean that the bikes spend more time on the street and less time in the shop. That means more bikes available for our customers.

A woman walking in a crosswalk on Tremont Street with her sister Friday shortly after 6 p.m. was hit by Brunelle on his bike when he ran a red light, according to police reports released today. The woman was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with head injuries after, Brunelle claims, he flagged Chandler down to help him help her.“I was trying to get a taxi for her and this guy comes out and hits me and then he tries to run me over with his car,” Brunelle said. “I said, ‘We were on a group ride. Someone got an injury, they’ve got to go to the hospital.’ He started getting in my face and ‘expletive you’ and so I shot back and I said, ‘Expletive you.’ He gets out and he attacks me. He tried to run me over.”Chandler began punching Brunelle “with his fist, knocking him to the ground and continued the assault while Brunelle was on the ground,” court documents state.
