   I say 68 years young because unlike most casual bike riders, Jon was training for the Red Cross Tour du Rouge Houston-New Orleans the day before Easter when he was hit from behind by a woman who allegedly was driving in the shoulder looking for an address. She has not been charged. Even though he was wearing his helmet, the impact slammed his head into the ground causing brain swelling so bad that they had to remove a quarter of his skull. He’s now in a medically induced coma with a less than 50 per cent chance of survival but continues to improve thanks to lots of prayer. You can check in on Jon’s progress by looking at this Facebook page.

 Trevelise, a Union City native now living in Houston spends a large part of his life cycling Galveston Island in Texas where he also owns a beach house. He has raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity in both the MS 150 and the Red Cross Tour du Rouge.

 We talk about distracted driving laws here in New Jersey, mostly focusing on texting while driving, but of course there are so many other ways to become distracted while behind the wheel. Now that the warmer weather is here and more cyclists will be out riding, it’s even more important to keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.

Have you ever had a close encounter with a distracted driver?
