This is awful news -I hope that a proper traffic plan can be implemented to accomodate bikers going through Sullivan Square so this tragedy doesnt happen again. Bicyclist and their supporters should continue to put pressure on city planners to make this a reality. We all need to raise awareness of using caution for both motorist and bicyclists that share the same road -Sullivan Sq. is a beast. My thoughts and prayers are with the bicyclist's family. RIP...
