Family's requests - Keep this about Mark, and not the political side, nor the petition to ban bikes. BIKEIOWA request - This day is about Mark - the cyclist who died doing something legal. The family realizes that cycling was a big part of Mark's life, but they don't want the cyclists to be the main attraction. Please treat this as a "Ride of Silence" type of event in remembrance of Mark life. Respect. Be adamant that you will speak with the media only if they don't include anything about bike ban petition. It is not right. Safety Vests - Please wear safety vests as a token of safety on the roads, and Share the Road awareness. You can leave comments on Mark's remebrance forum PLEASE show up if you can.
Rest in Peace Mark. Related News
