    fellow mtbr'er "tiffany in anthem" is down

    when are people driving cars gonna start looking out for us cyclists??!!??.........

    sorry for the horrible bike pics (not one piece of her bike is still functional) but i thought that this might scare some people straight. from what we know as of this afternoon, tiff is stable at the hospital with head truama. send out your love and prayers........and keep the rubber side down!!

    wed nite we are doing a tribute/fundraiser for tiffany call the shop for more info....(480)-488-5261

    kaolin @ the flat tire bike shop

    UPDATE!!

    heres the plan.......we normally have a fundraising wed nite ride that benifits cave creek park and other local entities. this week (i.e tommorrow) we are riding in support of our pal tiffany. meet at the flat tire bike shop at 6:30pm or so, ride rolls out at 7pm sharp. the ride is a mountain bike ride that loops into cave creek parks go john/overton trails. after the ride we walk across the street and eat bomb bbq, at bryans black mountain bbq. hang out and ride/eat/drink in good measure for tiffany's sake. please show up and donate whatever funds you can to alliviate some financial hardships for tiff and will. call for more info.

    heres a gps file of the regular wed nite loop.
    http://connect.garmin.com/activity/37998731

    heres our facebook page
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cave-C...?ref=ts&__a=8&

    its threads like this that make me proud to be an arizona mtbr user..............

    kaolin @
    flat tire bike shop
    6149 e cave creek rd
    cave creek, az 85331

    UPDATE #2!!

    due to tiffany's popularity we are also hooking up a road ride on wed nite for those who want to support but don't own a mtb bike. meet at the flat tire bike shop at 6:30pm on wed, ride up cave creek rd starting at 7pm. this will conjunctivlely end with the mtb ride at 9pm at bryans black mtn bbq. make sure to bring both front and rear lights to raise awareness for all cyclist while keeping it legal. come one come all!!!!

    UPDATE #3!!
    another quick bit of information for everyone interested in the nite ride to help out tiffany on wed nite. the road ride from the shop at 7pm will be escorted by the cave creek town marshall, adam stein, until we get out of town. very cool for da police to help us out in our quest to raise awareness for cyclists in this area.

    UPDATE #4
    mike rigney who works for the town of cave creek is helping out with the wed nite road right in tiffany's benifit heres the proposed route

    To view Graves Benefit Ride, follow the link below:

    FINAL UPDATE
    good news, due to overwhelming support for tiffany we are expecting a huge number of riders this evening. bad news, the mountain bike portion of ride is cancelled. we simply just can't ride after dark on maricopa park property with this many riders without a permit and or planning. because of this we are asking all riders to meet at the northwest corner of cave creek rd and school house rd. from this point we can stage all riders and police escort off of a main rd while we wait to start. this ride is for all riders of all abilities, we just ask to ride safe, use lights and wear a helmet. i cant wait to have this "show of force" for the cycling community while we are raising funds for a wounded warrior.

    call my cell for ANY questions at all.

    Did this happen in Anthem? I live up here and I've heard of quite a few people getting hit by cars over the years, including my daughter a couple years ago. She got bumped on her way to school. A chipped tooth and a few scrapes and bruises, but she's ok. Sorry to hear about this accident. Best wishes to her. A lot of people don't look twice before gunning it.

    On another note, we have a few new stop lights up here and I keep seeing roadies just blow through the red lights. I wish they would follow the rules of the road.

    Tiff

    This happened on cave creek road. There was a backhoe behind her and a landscape truck passed the backhoe and went to pull back into the lane and never saw her. He hit her with the right front of his truck! She never saw it coming. As Kaolin said, she has a fractured skull and some brain trauma. They are monitoring her hourly.

    Our thoughts go out to Will also!! Another lesson learned - get your road id! Tiff only had a cell phone on her (as most of us do) and it was several hours before Will knew. They did not know who to contact.

    I ride Cave Creek Rd quite a bit actually...

    Definitely going to get the Road ID. Something I've thought of before.

    Best wishes for a full recovery!

    First and foremost thoughts and hopes for a full and speedy recovery Tiffany!

    Another quicktip to go with the road ID. Put your emergency contacts in your phone under ICE, ICE2,... (In Case of Emergency) A lot of the time the emergency personnel will check the phones for this information.

    I always carry my license, Med ID and I have the ICE contact in my phone.

    Think I'm going to add the Road ID as well though.

    Thanks to the previous poster for clearing that acronym up, because while I certainly could see a need for having the Immigration & Customs Enforcement contact info close by these days, In Case of Emergency makes more sense on a road ride...

    this is horrible news...we ride CC Rd quite often. If the landscape truck hit her on the right front of the truck, he should have been able to see her!!! How did the guy NOT see her?

    Road ID I have always thought about but never have done it. Do carry a card with vital info and med cards and have ICE info on both our phones.

    Tiff, healing vibes sent your way!!! Hang in there girl! Will, if you need anything, let us know.

    So sorry to hear this. I don't know Tiffany but wish her a smooth recovery. That's terrible. I rode Cave Creek Road on Sunday as I do most Sundays. I must say that road feels like the safest part of the ride, with well-marked bike lanes all the way from Greenway Pkwy. to Pima Rd. (I always find Pima Rd. itself to be a little scary). Just goes to show there IS no truly 'safe' road out there and to take all the precautions you can. I need to get a Road ID! Does anyone know where on CC this occurred?

    Thinking of you as well Tiffany and hoping your recovery will be speedy!

    +1 on the road ID. I hope I never have to use mine.

    Sometimes it's safer to safely blow a red light rather than stay in an intersection taking up a turn lane in heavy traffic. All it does is piss people off and either turn right right on your wheel as you're clipping in, or fly past you and cut back to the right lane 100 feet down for making them wait while you clip in. eff that, I've run them and explained my way out of tickets. Have you ever traveled internationally and seen how others manage red lights well enough?

    Hate seeing a roadie down like that...vibes.

    Illegal landscaper driving on a Mexican license? Yes, I went there because I think it matters and I'm sick of being cut off by trailered landscaping trucks in tukee/chandler.

    This is a good vibes thread for a super nice and friendly rider who is injured. let's do our best to keep it that way so that she's ready to read this it is full of good vibes.
    I'd hate for this thread to turn into a another illegal immigration or roadie vs car thread.

    Ugh, landscaping trucks are the scourge of the desert roads. With so damn many Palm trees that need tending too these things are everywhere. Every close call I have had with accompanying traffic has been with a landscape truck and trailer.

    As far as accompanying traffic they are much worse than any other user on the roads. Cross traffic not so much but accompanying heck yes.

    Glad that she is stable, especially after seeing that first picture. Keep strong Tiffany!
