The Chainlink

Hey all,

I've talked with some of you about Mariel Mentink, but it might not be news you've heard otherwise. I wouldn't have if I didn't have so many friends in the Austin cycling community...

Mariel is a Chicago girl who was severely injured in a hit and run on New Year's Eve in Austin, TX while riding with a group of helmeted, well-lit cyclists. She was only recently deemed stable enough to be moved from a hospital there back to Chicago, where she's near her family and friends, for continuing treatment and rehab. There are regular updates from her family here:

There is a benefit for Mariel on the 26th and I'll be heading there for a while after CCM.
The chainlink event page with a little more info:

I hope some of you guys can make it out.

Hi Michelle - Please add this event to the chainlink calendar. If you put the end time as 11:45 p.m. and note in the body of the event that it goes until 2 a.m. it won't hog the calendar the day after the event. Thanks! - willow

I really like the Viaduct. I saw the Cat Circus there not long after I moved here...
