Mass funding for the families of the fallen Bollard brothers, electric bicycles flourishing despite a short supply, and registration for upcoming rides in Los Angeles

Following on from yesterday’s main story, a crowdfunding campaign is raising money for the families of Adam and Matthew Bollard.

The brothers were killed Saturday by an alleged DUI driver near the finish line of a St. George, Utah tour. The leadership infamously claimed that she lost control of her car after losing control of her gut, failing any sobriety test on the ground.

Adam leaves behind his wife and son, while Matt leaves behind his wife and four children.

The fund raised more than $ 61,000 out of the $ 100,000 target in the first day alone.
