    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


    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.

    heres our facebook page

    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:

    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.

    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.
