cyclist . Cycling safety campaigner
In 2008 a local Boise cyclist was struck and killed by a car. The tragedy shook the tight-knit cycling community to the core so in response to the accident, the nonprofit group Look! Save a Life was founded to work to improve the relationship between cyclists and motorists. Brendon Lyons was one of the founders.
In 2013, in a strange twist of fate Brendon was cycling with his girlfriend and was struck from behind from a car while pedaling in a bike lane.
