New Hanover County

When your mission is to "promote safe cycling for all and to contribute to a global social change...and share the road safely and with respect", we just can't let instances like that which happened in New Hanover County, NC go un-noticed.

This week a 47 year-old cyclist, Ronald Doolittle II and his 17 year-old son, were struck down when a vehicle swerved into the bike lane and collided with these two riders.  Ronald Sr. didn't survive and Ronald Jr. was left suffering with severe head injuries, only to pass the next day.

We are saddened to hear of yet another un-necessary event and will continue our fight to prevent future instances from happening.  Safe roads are all of our responsibilities and we encourage you to join us in our fight.

This Sunday we'll be riding in the Round Rock Express Ride to gather riders and speak out to our cause.  If you're in the Austin area, we hope you'll join us.  Please help us fulfill our mission.


  1. Thanks for posting this, guys. We are having a ride in Wilmington on Sunday in honor of the Doolittle family!

  2. That is awesome. We will be with you guys in spirit on Sunday. Ride Strong and be sure to help us continue to spread the message.

    Thank You.
