- This isn't really a biking story, it's more of an unsafe gun handling story, but yeah, a cyclist was riding along in Herndon when a handgun discharged as it was being loaded inside a house and the cyclist was shot in the abdomen. The cyclist was taken to a hospital for surgery. John E. Albers, 49, was charged with willfully discharging a firearm in a public place resulting in injury and taken to the county detention center. This is why we need to register bikes.
- A 66-year-old was riding a bicycle Friday afternoon along the shoulder of Route 1 in Bethany Beach. Reportedly, she tried to cross over the northbound lanes of the highway in a diagonal direction into the path of vehicles. One vehicle was able to brake and swerve to avoid hitting her. That maneuver forced another vehicle to brake and swerve to the left, striking her. She was thrown from the bicycle and died at the scene.
