It's still hard to think about the accident and all it took from us. The intersection where Matt's accident occurred became the focal point of Spokane's new bike loop reconstruction program. The bike loop construction included bike lanes and better visibility for motorists and cyclists alike. It was completed this August. A ghost bike remains at the intersection. I have new friends in Spokane who send me updates and pictures. I'm grateful to them (Thanks Tomas) for keeping me "in the loop". RIP Matt Hardie. This doesn't get any easier. damn.
