Kerry Kunsman Road Safety Fund
The Bike Coalition and cycling community recently lost an amazing teacher, advocate and friend. Kerry Kunsman passed away on September 22nd as a result of injuries he received after being hit from behind by a pickup truck while bicycling in Oregon. Kerry was a Board Member and cycling instructor here at the Coalition, and has taught hundreds of people how to ride confidently and safely.
He will long be remembered
for the tremendous care he invested in each of his students and his memorable
laugh. What he brought to the bicycling world is much greater than the Bike
Coalition and his larger-than-life legacy will live on.
His family has requested that donations in his memory be directed to the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition to establish a Road Safety Fund in his name. Click here to make a donation in memory of Kerry.
The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition advocates for and protects the rights of all people who ride bicycles. We promote bicycling as a mainstream, safe, and enjoyable form of transportation and recreation.
Walk+Bike Carlsbad promotes walking and bicycling to and from the Village, Barrio and beach areas as well as within greater Carlsbad. Join the City of Carlsbad, Circulate SD, and the Bike Coalition for a lively campaign running through September 2015. The Bike Coalition will be organizing bike education, meetups, activities that promote local businesses,and active living community events. This grant is funded by the San Diego Association of Governments and intended to be a model for the region.
Did you know that Carlsbad has emphasized making the Village and Barrio more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly by placing more than 100 "Bike the Village" bike racks and corrals in both neighborhoods, and by making it easier for pedestrians to cross Carlsbad Boulevard by installing medians and making other changes.
