Tuesday Sept. 6th, we will ride in protest and remembrance
We watched Dennis Flanagan’s death play out in slow motion. For 5 years the community has voiced our need for a safe W. Carson St. Corridor for all. These needs were thrown by the wayside, and 9 days after the project’s completion, a person biking the corridor was killed.
Traffic deaths preventable.
We will meet one week from Dennis Flanagan’s death. We will be riding from 27th Street in the South Side. to McKees Rocks and back:
Tuesday September 6th at 7pm
27th St & Tunnel Blvd Healthy Ride Station (Southside Works)
Join us Tuesday night to change the narrative to include the safety of all people – young, old, abled, disabled, on foot, bike, transit, car: everyone.Ride With Us
In support of Dennis Flanagan’s family
Last night, BikePGH staff, members, and other members of bicycling community gathered for the first ride in protest of unsafe street design, and were joined by Dennis Flanagan’s grieving family. They were grateful to have the bicycling community supporting them, and we are here to continue supporting them. Please consider making a contribution to the RIP Dennis Flanagan You Caring fund to help his family cover funeral costs.
