  1. I am very sorry to hear such sad and heartbreaking news. I was, and am attempting to again be, a bicyclist. Thanks to Bell Helmets, I am alive. I'm the survivor of a hit and run on a Sat night/Sun morn @3:30 am in Dec of 2009. I was going home from work. I had several fractures & 1 shattered heel, and could not walk for about 3 mos.
    But forget about me. This is for Connor. May God bless you, Connor, and take you to be with him.
    John
