We lost Mark Bixby (44) in a tragic accident Wednesday March 16, 2011; an airplane crash, with 6 on board, killed 5; Mike Jensen was the lone survivor and is currently in the UCI Burn Center – his condition continues to improve. Mark & Mike were both on the trip from San Jose to Long Beach. Please note: the accident was not related to the San Jose/Long Beach trip.

Mark will be forever remembered for his many virtues including his efforts and hard work to promote safe bicycling; not least for his ceaseless campaigning to include a bicycle and pedestrian path on the proposed Gerald Desmond bridge that will replace the existing structure that connects Long Beach to the Long Beach Harbor.
A note about Mark:
His energy: limitless
His optimism: unwavering
His enthusiasm to learn: boundless
His bandwidth: unrivaled
It was an honor to be your friend.
We loved you dearly.
We will miss you deeply.
Everyone pray for Mike Jensen’s recovery.
Please accept my sincere apologies if you hadn’t yet heard of Mark’s & Mike’s Accident.
