Island EMS paramedics attend to a woman cyclist at the scene of a collision with a car on Prince Street Wednesday about 2 p.m.

 

A woman cyclist is in hospital after a collision with a car turning into a parking space in downtown Charlottetown today.

The collision with the bicycle happened about 2 p.m. on Prince street close to the corner with Grafton.

A red compact car was facing south, towards the harbour on Prince Street and turning into a parking space next to St. Paul's church on the west-side of the street.

It was just a few metres south past the traffic lights at Grafton Street.

The woman on the bicycle was driving south as well, on the edge of the traveled portion of the road when the collision occurred.

She was not wearing a helmet and suffered injuries to her head after striking the front on the turning car.

The collision is still under investigation.

     June 16, 2014 — Mike Connolly

Cory Jay breaks his own record for the 2014 Mother's Day TT. Most people watching the race where surprised when Jay crossed the finish line and his time was sub 28 minutes due to the horrendous conditions. It was raining with high winds and it was cold, some even saw snow. The conditions were far from ideal and the roads were wet. Jay's time was 27.22.74. He shaved 28 seconds off the old mark of 27.50 that he set in 2011.

How Can You Help? VOLUNTEERS, the Vital Link
     November 30, 1999 — David Sims

How can you help?

Cycling PEI is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization.  Volunteers plan, organize and often participate in sanctioned road races, mountain bike events, recreational adult rides that range from introductory to strenuous, and children’s training programs.   We visit schools, hold technical work shops on how to care for your bicycle, and interact with many levels of government to develop safer cycing opportunities on Prince Edward Island.  CPEI exists in a context that includes an international sanctioning body (UCI), a national association, the other provincial cycling associations, and a provincially organized Sport PEI.   Being effectively represented within each of these groups requires commitment of seasoned volunteers.  Even our most enthusiastic volunteers have limited hours to offer; if CPEI is to maintain its effective level of performance and/or grow, we need help.  The good news is that we can accept assistance in many forms, ranging from occasionally showing up to help at events, to taking charge of events.  If your heart is with us, but personal constraints preclude offering any time, a financial contribution would be highly appreciated.  Please contact our executive director, Mike Connolly, for details at mconnolly@sportpei.pe.ca. We offer tax receipts for all donations through the Amateur Sport Trust Fund.
