I followed this story a bit, as I lived in Thousand Oaks for many years.
Glenn Garvin was not just a dentist and cyclist. He was very active in promoting bicycle safety for the City of Thousand Oaks. So it’s horribly ironic that he was struck and killed by a motorist while riding his bike in the bike lane. The motorist that struck him accepted responsibility after admitting that she had been advised she had cataracts a month before the accident.
That’s a hefty verdict, one unlikely to be paid in full. But there is no amount of money that can replace a passionate cycling advocate. It’s a loss for his family, the city, and the cycling community at large.
I only wish there was a way some good could come from this.
