From the Baltimore Metro Wheelers Cycling Club:
Please come out and join many cyclists from the DMV area to support this memorial ride in honor of Natasha Pettigrew and cycling advocacy for safety! I am strongly encouraging everyone from our Baltimore area cycling groups to make an attempt to support this event!
Natasha Pettigrew was a hit and killed on September 19th, 2010 while riding her bicycle as she trained for a Half Ironman. The driver hit her, and continued on home with Natasha’s bicycle lodged under her SUV (surprisingly the driver was sentenced to one year and $1,500). This ride calls attention to the need for a keen sense of awareness for everyone to share the resources of the road. The ride helps to remember the lost of a beautiful lady gone too soon!!!
Proceeds from the ride will be donated to The Lab Rescue Society of Maryland to support their rescue efforts. Natasha was an advocate for animal rights and always got her pets from shelters and rescue organizations.
