When will it ever stop?

From the blotter

Tuesday, June 30, 2009, 03:41 PM
Austin police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a person who was driving a car that hit a 27-year-old bicyclist at Lavaca and Fifth streets about 2:30 a.m. June 23, police said in a statement.

The cyclist was hit from behind by a car that fled the scene, the statement said. Witnesses told a friend of the cyclist that the suspect vehicle was a taxi cab, the document said.

The cyclist’s friend took him to an area hospital with serious injuries that are not considered life-threatening, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Vehicular Homicide Detectives at 974-4761.

If you know anything call that number.

Police in CapMetro Buses

By now, I'm sure all of you have heard about APD's plans to hop on Cap Metro buses and begin ticketing aggressive drivers. As of now, they plan on only partolling all major highways in Austin, but I'm sure this will spread to the downtown arteries as well. As of now, no one has mentioned anything about them handing out tickets to pedestrians or cyclists, but I'm sure it's part of their plan.

Just a friendly reminder to be smart and safe on your bike.

well, here we go again....

I can't keep anything a secret.....

I know it is a long ways off, but some of the sponsors are starting to roll in. Going to be epic again this year.

More to come soon, Not sure on the time, but it will be early enough for you to still have time to go home and get cleaned up and put your hell costumes on.

It is suggested you race in them as well, because there may be a prize for that again this year!
