Triathlon raises safety issues
To the editor:
On April 2 my boyfriend, Tony Rigdon, was struck by a car while competing in the city-sponsored Steamboat Classic Triathlon. It is truly a miracle he is alive -- and no thanks to reckless drivers or the city of Cape Girardeau. Drivers of motor vehicles need to learn some respect for cyclists who are out for recreational exercise or competing in races. The city needs to take a closer look at the viability of continuing to hold the race at a venue that is unsafe and does not require the use of helmets. When is Cape Girardeau going to learn?
