In the past couple of weeks, I’ve become aware of two cycling tragedies that have been in the news. One involved Ellen Watters, a 28-year-old professional cyclist from New Brunswick, who was struck by a vehicle on a training ride two days before Christmas. Ellen died several days later from her injuries. The second tragedy involved 10-year-old Rosie Long from Oakville, Ontario. On her bike ride to school in November, Rosie was struck by a school bus that was pulling out of a parking lot, and she’s still in intensive care.
