Monday Hangover

We're a cycling blog. We write about cycling and cycling related things, but none of us lives in a vacuum.

I had every intent of posting something about bicycle advocacy, my reaction to the recent email plea to write my local Congress person sent by the Floyd Fairness Fund, or even the start of the 5th Tour of Georgia, but the tragedy in Blacksburg, VA has made it all seemingly trivial.

The homepage of the Virginia Tech (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University) website which was once adorned by the peaceful scene (leave it to me to find a photo with a bicycle in it) above is now a message board with updates, alerts, and podcasts of previous pressers.

A terrible, terrible tragedy. You have to wonder sometimes what kind of world we live in. Imus last week. Now this. Thanks for this post, Granny.
