After her father Jeffrey Dunn was diagnosed with cancer and passed away, Autumn Kristovich and husband, Caleb, decided to embark on a cross-country bike ride as a memorial to Dunn and to raise funds for other families experiencing terminal illness through the Jeffrey Dunn Memorial Fund. The Coeur d’Alene couple hopes to leave North Idaho again this week and continue on their journey through the Silver Valley, where Autumn grew up in Pinehurst, then through Montana, Wisconsin, Michigan and eventually, Annapolis, Md., where their ride will conclude.
Donations to the Jeffrey Dunn Memorial Fund are being accepted at www.jeffreydunnmemorialride.com. In addition, the website contains a blog, where those interested can follow the Kristovichs’ progress along the ride.

This is a video from 1906 San Francisco; horses, horse and buggy, trolley cars, automobiles, bicycles and pedestrians. No designated lanes for any of them, not even crosswalks. Looks like right of way is given to the largest vehicle. This is an example of what happens when you don’t plan for growth.
