A great friend of cycling died today.
Don Stathos (that is Don standing behind Tom McCall, signing the Oregon Bicycle Bill), author of the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Bill, tireless member of the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (over 30 years), shepherd of Oregon’s groundbreaking Bicycle lifestyle, lifelong Republican who believed in American values like taking care of each other and building strong communities, and, my personal friend.
Full of humor, wit and love. Oregon lost a true son.
