Morning Links: Woman-less Tour de France is all but over, and way too much national bike news for one day

Nibali demolishes the field on the famed Hautacam, just like that guy Lance used to do, virtually cementing his victory in the Tour de France. Orica-GreenEdge rider Michael Albasini insists he’s not a racist and did not say what they say he said.

The Washington Post notes the total lack of women competing in the Tour de France, other than a token separate but unequal race on the final day. NPR says the Tour is a 2,200 mile test of epic eating.

And an expert says cycling is winning the war on doping, apparently while managing to keep a straight face.

……..

Local

Plans are underway to improve accessibility to Union Station from surrounding neighborhoods by bike and on foot.

Streetsblog looks at yesterday’s press conference for AB 47, a proposed bill to create an Amber Alert-style warning system for serious hit-and-runs.

The annual Brentwood Gran Prix rolls Sunday, August 3rd, along with an associated community ride to explore the upcoming Expo Line.

Pasadena needs volunteers to test bicycle detection systems at intersections.

Great editorial from the San Gabriel Valley Tribune says smart growth is our future — including bike lanes in LA, Pasadena and other cities in the SGV.

 

State

A San Diego bike rider is seriously injured in a left cross collision, yet the headline puts the blame on the cyclist.

Now that the courts have reaffirmed that the reckless driving statute applies to bikes, San Francisco Streetsblog wonders when the local DA will apply it to drivers.

In a reversal of a bizarre ban, it’s finally legal to park your bike in your own garage in San Francisco.

 

National

A new Portland study says the air is cleaner for bike riders at 11 mph.

Even a platinum-level bike friendly city can be a dangerous place to ride, as a cyclist in my hometown is critically injured by a red light-running driver.

A Colorado hit-and-run driver gets six years for killing an 11-year old pedestrian; the defense says he’s a good boy who only ran away so he could go home and hug his mom. No, really.

An Iowa writer says bicycling helped heal her broken heart.

Despite what some on the far right might claim, bikes aren’t a symbol of anything.

A New York artist asks which kind of cyclist would you be?

Now that’s more like it, as an upstate New York driver faces 25 years to life after being convicted for killing a cyclist in a drunken hit-and-run, then fleeing police with the victim’s body still embedded on his truck.

A five-year old New Orleans boy is lucky to be alive after a brakeless rider slams into him and his two-year old brother.

 

International

Low fence creates a protected bike lane in Beijing.

A Toronto street is a cyclists’ door zone, as doorings increase but prosecutions don’t.

A London tailor creates a breathable, bike to boardroom bespoke suit for cyclists.

Maybe that Dutch cyclist who twice cheated death on doomed Malaysia Airlines flights didn’t after all; no record can be found that he ever bought a ticket for either flight.

 

Finally…

After refusing to apologize to the cop who tried to stop him, salmon cyclist Alec Baldwin has his case scheduled for dismissal if he can just avoid getting arrested for the next six months; good luck with that.

And talk about a great kid, as an eight-year old boy finds a way to include his disabled brother in all three events in a triathlon.

 

LA’s hit-and-run bike body count climbs; Lakewood Sunday Funday and Brentwood Grand Prix

Add another name to SoCal’s climbing bike body count.

It made the news all over town when 18-year old Inglewood High School star athlete Markeis Vonreece Parish was killed in a hit-and-run while crossing the street at Crenshaw and 78th Place last month.

What I missed at the time, or the stories I read failed to mention, was that he was walking his bike in an unmarked crosswalk when he was hit by a speeding Mercedes with enough force to send his body sliding a full block to 79th Street, and stripping him of his clothes as he skidded across the pavement.

And even though he was identified as a pedestrian at the time, that makes him more than just another notch in the seemingly endless epidemic of hit-and-runs plaguing Los Angeles and other Southern California cities.

It makes him one of us.

And I apologize for the delay in acknowledging that.

The collision occurred at 6:15 pm on Saturday, July 20th; the car was found less than an hour later, roughly two miles away at Imperial Highway and Spinning Avenue. To the best of my knowledge, no arrest has been made, despite reports that the identity of the driver is common knowledge within the community.

This is the 55th bike-related fatality in Southern California this year, and the 24th in Los Angeles County; that compares to 23 in LA County for all of last year.

It’s also the 9th bicycling death in the City of Los Angeles, compared to five in each of the previous two years. And it’s the 13th fatal hit-and-run involving a bike rider in Southern California since the first of the year; eight of those have occurred in LA County — seven in the City of LA.

My sympathy and prayers for Markeis Parish and all his family and loved ones.

Cheering on Brentwood Cat 1 racers, SaMo police catch a bike thief, and a weekend’s worth of links

Congratulations to Velo Club La Grange on another successful Brentwood Grand Prix on Sunday.

Even my non-biking wife, whose eyes glaze over at the mere mention of bicycling, was highly entertained. As was the Corgi, who can be heard cheering the riders on in this brief clip from the from the Cat 1 and 2 crit.

At least, I think she’s cheering.

………

When Santa Monica police saw a man using a bolt cutters to remove a lock from a $1500 Trek, he told them he had lost his key. However, using their Sherlockian powers of deduction, they quickly noticed it was a combination lock.

Needless to say, he is now under arrest.

Thanks to Stanley E. Goldich for the heads-up.

………

The UCI, the agency governing international cycling, insists that USADA has no authority to pursue charges against Lance Armstrong; the question is, do they want to prosecute him themselves, or derail the charges?

Meanwhile, ex-Tour de France winner Alberto Contador says he’s grown up during his doping ban.

The hit-and-run epidemic has become so severe even cops are victims. Beverly Hills may or may not discuss proposed bikeways, and may actually get bike racks in the hopefully soon-to-be-former biking black hole; thanks to Mark Elliott of Better Bike for the heads-up. La Cañada Flintridge becomes the latest local city to develop a new bike plan; link courtesy of Erik Griswold. A La Puente man suffers serious injuries in a fall on the San Gabriel Canyon Road after losing control on a descent and crashing into the mountain. A Bakersfield firefighter takes on the quarterfinals of Olympic sprint cycling, while a Temecula woman wins silver in team pursuit. A Bay Area cyclist faces deportation for riding on the wrong side of the street. Sonoma cyclists confront a summer of sorrow.

Bicycling looks at seven fast, fun and affordable road bikes; affordability being a relative term, of course. UCONN basketball coach Jim Calhoun breaks his hip falling off his bike, surgery was successful. Rochester-area cyclists gather to honor a pair of cyclists, one killed and one seriously injured. Lights, reflective clothes and a helmet aren’t enough to save an Ohio rider. A New York ethicist tries to justify running stop signals on a bike. Thirty years after graduating, a former Baton Rouge resident takes her first ride to school. A fleeing Florida criminal kills two cyclists in an attempt to get away from police; that would be two counts of felony murder, right? Is a Florida bikeway a bike path to nowhere, or a key link in a future bike system?

The family of the cyclist killed by an Olympic media bus asks that his death not be used for political point-scoring by pro-bike advocates. The next generation of British bike racers suffered a tragic loss as an 18-year old member of their developmental squad dies after crashing into a wall. Is this really a safe junction? British success in Olympic cycling has lead to an explosion in the MAMIL population. Brit riders are kicking ass in the velodrome. Bald, beautiful and an Olympic gold medal winner in track cycling. Once again, the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain offers a list of links that puts my modest efforts to shame. Salzburg, Austria suffers an increase in cycling deaths. David Hembrow demonstrates how to get parked cars off the streets.

Finally, in a breathtaking attack of rationality, Caltrans proposes lowering the speed limit — yes, lowering — on the Pasadena Freeway to 45 mph. Now if they can figure out a way to drop the limit on a few other roads. And a motorist chases down a hit-and-run driver who fled after hitting a bike rider, and captures it all on video; Cyclelicious speculates that it may have been shot here.

The UK’s leading retail chain mistakenly offers a bike for sale for just £1 — about a buck-and-a-half. Despite a public confession, the International Olympic Committee doesn’t seem to care that a gold medal-winning track cyclist deliberately fell to cause a restart; evidently, things like that only matter in badminton. An abusive spectator is arrested and fined after hurling abuse at the family of a bronze medal-winning Aussie track cyclist. Wrong place at the wrong time, as a Malaysian cyclist travels over 9,000 miles to see the Games, only to get arrested in the Critical Mass mess. Town Mouse appreciates the attention to detail in a newly improved bike lane on a visit to London, but notes that’s not always the case. It’s not a network of bike lanes in Dublin, it’s an adrenaline-boosting cycle-coaster. Paris plans to return the banks of the Seine to people, rather than cars. A notorious Aussie overpass claims a victim on Thursday. Thanks to a rash of bicycle bombs, Jaipur, India residents now have to show ID to buy a bike.

Finally, a driver texts that he needs to stop texting, just before driving off a cliff. And two hours after stealing a bike from a bike shop, a thief returns to buy — what else? — a lock.
