Sad news, bikers. It seems like we have the first cyclist victim of hit-and-run of 2013. NY Post just informed that a cyclist was hit on George and Central Avenue this morning around 4AM. The cyclist was taken into Kings County Hospital where he underwent a complicated head surgery, and is currently in a serious but stable condition. We are happy to hear that this cyclist will live; Terence Connor from Bushwick band Total Slacker wasn’t so lucky in November 2012.

Guys, this is again a reminder to be super-careful when biking, especially in the dark. Make sure you always have two lights, helmet and use only bike safe routes. Also check out safety tips for bikers issues by the City.
