    My heart aches for theme and their families. I also lament comments that decry bikes being on roadways at all. We need barriers to protect us from vehicles who do not share the road not keep us off the roads @

    My thoughts and Prayers are with those whom lost loved ones because of this tragedy. Along with those that have been injured. Something definitely needs to be done for the protection of cyclists, perhaps wider cycling lanes and barriers or separate paved trails away from the roads will work with the best.

    My deepest sympathy for the families and friends of the cyclists that are injured and those that were killed. Sympathy also to the family of the driver of the truck. They did no wrong, but will be associated with his crime.
