Lewis Grider, the man accused of the hit-and-run death of bicyclist Gail Kline on May 31st near Salina, goes on trial today at the Salina courthouse.
After a thorough investigation, Grider was charged in September with reckless involuntary manslaughter, leaving the scene of an injury or fatal accident, and failing to report an accident.
Let’s hope justice is served in this case…
Kandango Carries On
Next year’s Kandango ride, a three-day bicycle tour through the Smoky and Flint Hills of central Kansas, is scheduled to begin on May 30th, 2014:
Kandango is a bicycle tour on the back roads in Kansas, organized by cyclists who enjoy the camaraderie of fellow cyclists and the adventure of new black top and communities to discover and explore. It is truly unique from other bicycling events. Riders will be delighted with the route selections, which are optimized for minimal traffic and maximum scenery and vistas.
The two central objectives of the ride are to engage the local communities we pass through, and to encourage the casual cyclist to come out and experience a ride in the open country, on safe roads and with fellow riders.
The Kandango ride offers a unique bicycling experience, utilizing four air-conditioned, 55-passenger motor coaches to provide rider support during the tour. Registration opens today, and is limited to the first 1,000 riders.
