Critical Mass Ride

A Critical Mass has been organized for Friday, Oct. 10 in memory of Jen Futrell.

Jen Futrell was hit by a car while riding southbound on Bardstown Road on Tuesday, Sept. 30. She received life-threatening injuries and was taken off life support a few days later. She died on Saturday, Oct. 4.

Come to Critical Mass on Friday, Oct. 10 to remember Jen and raise awareness of these issues:

— Helmet safety – at her family’s request, PLEASE show up wearing protective gear
— Increased protection for cyclists, including increased funding for cyclist awareness campaigns for drivers and more bike lanes
— Changing the culture of Louisville from car-centric to one that defers to alternative modes of transportation like cycling

We are meeting in the parking lot of Bardstown Road Presbyterian (they are not affiliated with this), biking down to the intersection of Baxter/Bardstown Road, then returning to the parking lot. We will pass the ghost bike, placed where Jen was hit. Her family has been made aware of this action and believes Jen would have supported it. ALL are invited, not just those who knew Jen.

Date: Friday, October 10, 2008
Time: 5:00pm – 6:00pm
Location: 1722 Bardstown Road
(Bardstown Road Presbyterian Church parking lot – where the Farmer’s Market is held)
