Awful. As someone who has lost a sibling as well as a close friend suddenly and unexpectedly, my heart really goes out to his family.

Sorry to hear that jtd13. My condolences to you.

Thank you. It was a few years ago.

I don't mean to deflect attention to me by bringing it up. I know death is difficult to deal with anytime. I just mention it because I know it hits differently when it's sudden like this.

The statement from the Knapp family is all class.

Knapp was hit while riding a bicycle.

RIP

Sad story. 

I learned a long time ago that 40lb bicylcles and 2 ton vehicles going 40-50 mph don`t not mix well. With distracted driving at an all time high you take your life in your hands riding a bike on a roadway.   RIP

I worry less about drunk driver than I do people texting and driving now.

I hope it didn't come off as looking for attention to bring it up. I know death is difficult to deal with anytime. I just mention it because I know it hits differently when it's sudden like this. 

I'm sure you weren't looking for attention, just looking to say that you could empathize or sympathize to a degree. No sweat in you saying you've suffered loss. And we all grieve differently, so bringing it up, even if it were for attention, is no big deal in my book.

So sad.

I’m not sure if it’s because so many people didn’t drive much for a year or what, but I’ve seen people do more stupid things behind the wheel the last couple of months than I’ve ever seen. I had already made the decision to not ride my bike anywhere but in my neighborhood or in trails, but stuff like this just reinforces it.

I was pretty scared to cycle on the road years ago after a bad fall - there’s no chance I’ll ever get out on the roads on my bike ever again.  Well, I guess if driverless vehicles become required then I’d reconsider but I’ll probably be too old to bike by the time that becomes ubiquitous.
