John Baker / Killingsworth Ride

January 8 at 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

This ride is meant to gather folks to listen to friends of John Baker about the kind of person he is, and how much he is loved as we hope for his long recovery. We will also discuss with nearby businesses and neighbors about what we can do to make Killingsworth safer for all Portlanders.

Per his GoFundMe:

John was hit by a car the night of 12/21/22 riding his bicycle in Portland Oregon. The drive fled the scene and is being sought after by PPD.

John sustained life threatening injuries. He has 2 brain bleeds, last night he was finally stable enough to undergo surgery to relieve some of the pressure in his brain. His neck is broken, we are not aware of the extent of the ramifications of this at this moment. His femur in one of his leg is shattered and he has a broken ankle. He will most likely be in ICU for a month if not more then from there we are unsure of what type of rehab will be needed.

The ride will be short as we ride from Stacks Coffeehouse over to Killingsworth/Montana where he was hit.

We would also appreciate any media to respect the privacy of individuals who choose to speak at this event. We ask that anybody quoted to provide explicit consent.

Lastly, please donate to his GoFundMe if you can. Thanks – Nic
