this is sad

Cyclist killed during race
A 24-year-old Chicago bicyclist was killed Saturday near Brimfield
while riding in the Proctor Cycling Classic.
Elizabeth Kobeszka was pronounced dead about 1:20 p.m.
at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center,
where she was taken after the 9:30 a.m. accident,
Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll said today.
Kobeszka was riding on Brimfield-Jubilee Blacktop Road
when she collided with another bicyclist,
then was struck by a pickup truck hauling a trailer.
She died of multiple injuries, Ingersoll said.

our hearts are heavy when we learn of such tragedies.
this is why we enforce centerline rules, by the way.
PLEASE be careful on your bikes.
