New Paltz bicyclists turn out on anniversary of crash to highlight safety

The six-mile ride included several bicyclists who had been hit by cars, including Gabriela O’Shea, who was seriously injured in a hit-and-run crash the year before. The 125-plus riders urged the construction of more paved shoulders, the passage of a law protecting bicyclists from passing cars, and a general awareness among motorists and bicyclists that the roads should be shared.
