Bike ride to honor two cyclists killed
PALM SPRINGS -- A memorial bike ride will be held Sunday in honor of two cross-country cyclists killed by a drunken driver on state Route 62.
Raymond Moore, 72, of Anaheim and Lyle Rosser Jr., 60, of Reseda were walking their bicycles up a highway grade west of Yucca Valley at 1:15 a.m. Sunday when they were struck by an eastbound pickup.
The men were on the third day of a cross-country bicycle tour, said Mary Nally, organizer of the memorial.
Bicyclists will meet at 6 p.m. at the Palm Springs Community Center at the corner of Palm Canyon Drive and Alejo Road for a short ride. Nally said the assembly is designed to educate both cyclists and motorists about safe driving.
Hope to see you there.
