Tragedy has struck Team California, as a 19-year-old cyclist who raced with the team recently died in an accident during a training run.
Los Angeles frequently ranks among the worst cities for bicyclists to commute. The city is bad enough with cars, as you can tell any time you try to drive through the 405. However, bicyclists have less protection than motorists, and they are more susceptible to serious injury when there is an accident.
Two cyclists in California's Santa Clarita Valley lost their lives in quick succession when they were both hit by cars in recent days.
