    There will be a rally on Friday, April 26th at the Wilson Building at noon to demand action from DC government.


    When: Friday, 4/26 at noon.

    Where: John A Wilson Building, DC

    Speeding drivers have killed two people on our streets in the last 72 hours and put six more in the hospital.

    Enough is enough.

    Mayor Bowser’s administration has spent the last five years asking for our trust and our patience as they work to make our streets safer.

    We are out of both.

    If your priorities are in the right place, safer streets are not hard to build, and they are not hard to build quickly. But the Bowser administration has shown that they are not up to task.

    Rally with us on Friday to demand immediate action.

    Not sure if you’d seen that Bicycling.com posted this about Dave Salovesh’s murder: https://www.bicycling.com/news/a2725...paign=16695999

    Multiple additional events to follow.
    I was out of town for the installation of @Dsalovesh Ghost Bike, but was able to visit it on a memorial ride last Sunday put together by @Dirt of Bikenetic. Several of us on the ride knew Dave from his advocacy, the original FCCI @ Swings, #BikeDC happy hours, Potomac Pedalers (especially the DownTown Breakaway Ride), etc, so many a tear were shed and group hugs given. While mourning, a local resident walked by, conveyed his condolences and recounted for us the scene which he had happened upon shortly after the incident. The Spirit at Florida and 12th NE still remains strong. Shalom.

    I just came across this story about Dave’s ghost bike. It got smashed by a car yesterday.

    We were just there earlier this week putting flowers on it.
    Be safe out there.
    Hugs,
