Sudbury Olympian Devon Kershaw teamed up with Eleanor McMahon, the CEO and founder of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition, to raise awareness for bike safety.

The importance of sharing the road was driven home as a cyclist who was trying to join the group was struck by a car during the second half of the ride.

 

An off-duty paramedic on a motorcycle stopped to assist the stricken cyclist, who was awake and trying to stand up. He was taken to the Sudbury Regional Hospital where he is now recovering from serious but non-life threatening injuries. Police say they do not expect to lay charges against the driver of the car.
