Death of avid cycling enthusiast has family and riding community in mourning | News


Cancer survivor Jim Lackey believed cycling saved his life, and gave him a life worth saving. But Lackey also knew that cycling could kill him, and when he broke his collarbone in a fall last June, his told his wife he would hang up his bike if he suffered another accident.

That accident came at 8:04 a.m. Aug. 31 in the 5200 block of Panorama Drive in northeast Bakersfield. No one is sure exactly what happened, but the husband and father came off his bike hard after approaching a temporary road sign placed in his path that read, “Right lane closed ahead.”
