    We mourn the death, while riding, of women's-rights advocate and journalist Mary Thom.

    The New York Times:

    "... her friends said her true love was her motorcycle ..."

    A truly remarkable person - activist feminism and a love of motorcycling. I hope we and others can learn from her life.

    RIP Mary Thom

    the Saw Mill River Parkway might just qualify for THE WORST road in America (incredibly unsafe entrance ramps)
