    Several years ago a cyclist was killed at the intersection of 14th and Mapleton and some locals created a "white bike" memorial on the corner. I recall riding by at the time and taking note, and now that I ride by the location on a daily basis as part of my bike commute, there's not a day that doesn't go by that I don't think about it. It's an opportunity to see who else is around me while I am keenly aware of my place in our automobile-dominated suburban ecosystem. Coexistence IS important for bikers, drivers and in consideration of all parts of our system. So for those of us who can exercise prudence and consideration for our place and its impact on others, here's to the next breath of presence and mindfulness.
