The woman who organizes the SantaFondo, Irena Ossola, is the cyclist who was badly injured on Friday on Alameda.  See this SF New Mexican article.

She is in serious condition at UNM Hospital.  I don’t know any more about the accident than was reported in Monday’s paper.  However, I did find out from Brian K that her family would like the ride to go on and I think it would be great for as many of us as possible to ride to show her our support on Saturday.

The ride leaves from SF Brewing at 10 am.  The “standard” SantaFondo ride is the Galisteo loop (50 miles).  Last year a bunch of us did an out-back to Galisteo (40 miles), which is my personal plan for this year as well.  You don’t have to ride that far.  The prison loop via Lone Butte is a good shorter alternative (20 miles).

Let’s have a big SOB presence on Saturday!

Stay safe.  Ride more.
