Memorial ride for Patrick Lonergan

Thank you to Darren, Derek, Hamish and Stephen who rode with me today. Also, Patrick's friend Bill who said some very moving words in his honour and others including Councillor Michael Thompson.

Riding home a driver harrassed me about riding "in middle of the road" on a nearly deserted Bayview Avenue, even pulling over and stopping to berate me about it.
When will it all stop? I think, drivers need to take a long hard look at themselves and ask themselves what they are doing to all of us. Maybe then they will either slow down or even better yet, stop driving. Their lives do not depend on it, perhaps ours do. Patrick's & Victorias' lives sure did.

Memorial Ride for Victoria, Age 7

Thank you to the twelve riders who rode all the way up and a couple of others who rode with us part of the way. It's obvious from seeing the intersection that the driver simply failed to yield. More on Toronto Cranks.
