|I subscribe to touring.org's mailing list and I received a number of emails this morning stating yesterday that while riding Ken Kifer was hit and killed by a drunk driver 6 miles from his home.
Ken's site was one of the original reasons my wife and me got interested in bike touring.
Here's a link to his site... it's a fantastic resource.
If the info is accurate...
You'll be missed.

|He was living in Scottsboro Alabama. About 30 miles from me. I too, heard the news, but haven't seen any confirmation. But, I have no reason to doubt it. It is very sad. I will try to find a local news about it.
His web page is a ton of infomation, years of work....
A couple of years ago, he spoke to our cycling club, very interesting guy.
Cycling community lost a good one!

|I saw the newspaper article posted last night and numerous posts on other lists. Ken wasn't a racer or a pseudo racer. He was a cyclist. He lived a car-free life, had figured out most of the ins and outs of how to live a car-free life, and shared a lot of great stuff on his web site. Did a lot of very long self-supported tours and wrote about those too. He was a real inspiration to me when I was new to cycling and still is in many ways.
He died too young, but seemed to live it to the fullest. Another reminder not to waste a day.
