@Red Star You are correct. The email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you got pointing it out.
@David F Thank you for the clarification, David. I'm sorry your Linus went through this ordeal, but am glad it wasn't more serious. Is there any information on the pickup truck? Maybe we could try to track it down. Of course the police will only do anything if Linus can identify the driver.

Before I get any comments. I include whether or not the cyclist was wearing a helmet because it is an extra piece of information some readers care about. By law cyclists do not have to wear a helmet if they are over 16 years of age. It is impossible to know if a helmet would have helped in this or any crash and not wearing a helmet is not an assignment of blame on this website.

@Red Star Rose Canyon Campground says they are still open, but that they may close at any point.

@Red Star @EdBeighe It appears that even Mr. Kinkade is unsure of his situation. He's back on Twitter and says he is "waiting for resolution."
I'll try to follow up soon.
3 months ago on Update: Jamis-Hagens Berman cycling team assaulted by Tucson driver
My most serious crash was on a road ride with a group where people in front of me went down and I ran over a rider and then crashed myself.
I have fallen a lot mountain biking but nothing too serious. The worst crash was totally dumb and I ended up falling into a prickly pear. I have known people who have broken bones both on the road and mountain biking.

@StefanWalz Did you vote yesterday? If so you might just see the results. You have to wait 24 hours before you can vote again.

@3wheeler I'm not arguing with you. I'm trying to clarify where the path goes since I know you ride it a lot.
I was told the path cuts north just west of the train tracks. Clearly that isn't the case.
The map has a section that is in planning that utilizes the diversion wash and goes north of the VA. Thanks.

@3wheeler @MikeMcKisson @StrawHousePig This is based on you riding it? I didn't get to ride is and was visualizing based on a phone conversation. I was told it headed north just past the train tracks, but looking closer the proposed part does go north of the VA hospital. That is moot anyway...
@StrawHousePig It's in the planning phase. I should have used a different color. Here's the Loop map: http://webcms.pima.gov/UserFiles/Servers/Server_6/File/Government/The%20Loop/130607%20Loop%20Map%201.pdf
@keneddies If you read the site for long, you'll see typos. I try to eliminate as many as possible, but grammar is not my gift. It's gotten worse as I've had more and more of my time demanded elsewhere. I always appreciate when mistakes are pointed out so that I can correct them. Sometimes the comments are more gentle than others.

@keneddies You are right, Ken, I didn't get a chance to look over the post because I was rushing to get to my real job.
My sincere apologies.
@pedalpics @MikeMcKisson Certainly seems plausible, if not likely. Whatever other solution they come up with may have the same issues.
I suppose the library just didn't want it happening where the kids were seeing it. The real answer should be strict enforcement.
4 months, 1 week ago on Drug dealing & defecation prompt bike rack removal at main library
@pedalpics The connection seemed a little thin to me too, but I didn't do a good job relating their argument. Apparently the racks became a gathering spot. When bikes were parked there including some of the homeless' bikes it basically shielded what was happening behind them from the view of the plaza and the security guards at the library. They did say since they removed the parking, they have had less problems at that spot.
@Erik Ryberg It's a story I am working on and will have a post soon.

@CodyM48 You are right. Thanks for the catch. It was right in my head, but not my fingers apparently. I have fixed it.
@jeff About 100 feet on both ends. It'll be about when the tracks move back in after the turns.

@Harrison Smith The streetcar planners said drivers will have to wait behind bikes if they can't be safely passed. In actuality, bikes will probably be moving faster than the streetcar.
