A post to the Portland Bike Forums caught my eye the other day. It was a message from Mrs. BJ Wilberding, wife of the late Mike Wilberding.
Mike was killed on August 1, 2006 when someone turned their car into his path as he rode home from work in Beaverton.
Now, Mrs. Wilberding wants to set up a foundation to give immediate financial aid to families of fallen cyclists.
Here’s the message she posted to the forums.
