VBPC members -

This looks like an important data collection effort.  Having some experience
with the shortfalls of the existing crash data, this type of supplementary
info will be very helpful.  Please pass this on to your cycling friends.

Welcome to the League of American Bicyclists' electronic newsletter,

may be interested, but please make sure to credit the League of American
Bicyclists as your source. To join or learn more about the League, visit

HELP CDC COLLECT DATA ON INJURIES TO BICYCLISTS CAUSED BY DRIVERS
As part of its efforts to advance bicycle safety through the National
Bicycle Safety Network (http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/bike), the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is compiling cases of bicyclists who
have been injured by a driver not sharing the road. CDC is gathering data
on both unintentional and intentional acts by motorists to assess the
severity of the problem and to explore possible trends in these incidents.
All information will be treated confidentially. Please forward this
request to other cyclists and post this on your website for the next week.

If you have experienced such a case yourself, please let CDC know the
details by writing to Reshma Mahendra, MPH at mailto:[log in to unmask] by
Friday, May 18, 2001. In one paragraph, 250 words or less, please give a
short description of the incident that includes as much of the following
information as is known:

*       Initials of bicyclist(s) involved in a collision or incident with
a
motor vehicle
*       Age of bicyclist
*       Date and Time of incident
*       Location of incident (highway, residential street, etc.) including
city and state
*       Was the bicyclist injured?  What were the injuries?
*       Was there a head injury?
*       What was the mechanism of the collision? (car turned into path of
bicycle, hit from behind, etc.)
*       Who was at fault in the collision (and who determined fault)?
*       Was it a hit and run?
*       Was alcohol involved? (Was a citation issued for drinking, did the
motorist appear to be intoxicated, etc.)
*       Was the person (either bicyclist or motorist) at fault issued a
citation or charged?
*       If so, what were the details of the citation/charge? (Was there a
citation, court appearance? How much was the fine or what was the verdict
and sentence?)

Please write to Reshma Mahendra, MPH at mailto:[log in to unmask] with your
information no later than May 18. Thank you.


"BEST OF BIKE MONTH" AWARDS CONTEST
The League of American Bicyclists announces the first "Best of Bike Month"
awards competition. The goal is to recognize outstanding efforts to
promote bicycling at the local level, to compile a list of best practices
in bike month celebrations, and to get a picture of the extent of National
Bike Month celebrations.

All reporting forms on Bike Month festivities returned by June 15, 2001
will be entered into a national database providing a comprehensive picture
of Bike Month activities across the nation. Winning communities will
receive an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, DC in late July for the
"Best of Bike Month" awards ceremony and dinner. Winners will also have
their event showcased in the League's magazine and BikeLeagu News. Winning
communities will be selected based on the success and creativity of their
events, with particular attention given to events that attract significant
numbers of new riders.

For a printable version of the reporting form or for any questions on Bike
Month, please go to http://www.bikeleague.org/educenter/bikemonth.htm, or
write mailto:[log in to unmask] or call (202) 822-1333.

NEW YORK CITY TO HOST LANCE AND PRO CYCLING CHAMPIONSHIP ON AUGUST 4
Not that we'd want you to miss BikeFest 2001, but two-time Tour de France
champion Lance Armstrong and 71 other top racers will compete in the
100-kilometer New York City Professional Cycling Championship on a
one-mile loop through Wall Street in lower Manhattan on August 4. The
event, just one week after the 2001 Tour de France, will benefit Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, to help fight the disease that almost cost
Lance his life three years ago.
