Fundraiser for Injured Cyclist

On September 6 a cyclist, Colin Albright, who works at Pittsburgh Pro Bikes was savagely attacked on Pittsburgh's Southside in a road rage incident (details can be read here).  This Saturday there will be a fundraiser for him at the Over The Bar bicycle bar on the East Carson St (details are on the poster at the left).  There will be raffle prizes donated by sponsors listed.

Not specifically mentioned is whether this fundraiser is to pay for his medical expenses but it seems a safe assumption.  These kinds of fundraisers happen frequently and I encourage you all to either attend or if you cannot to donate here at the Bike Pittsburgh page.  It goes without saying that many of these fundraisers would be unnecessary if we had a comprehensive universal health care system that put patients over profits.
