“Slow down before you stop, or you’ll get hit from behind — you’ll get a kiss, a kiss you won’t like!” she cackled. She liked checking out guys jogging in tiny shorts, and if they were shirtless, even better. “Mmmmm,” she’d say, “that’s sexy. What do you think?” I’d smile big, corners of my mouth twitching, not letting myself laugh for fear I’d lose an ounce of white-knuckled concentration.
I almost always knew where I was going, and she liked that. We drove through Humboldt Park. “This is where I grew up,” she said, “you probably don’t come here very often.” “I’ve been here,” I replied. “Hmmmm,” she said. “Turn right at Kedzie. You know where that is?” I made a face. “We’re going to Belmont and Kedzie, right? I hate that intersection.” She cackled again. “I know you do, that’s why we’re doing it. It’s good for you.”
On December 22, Groupon software engineer James Rapley was bicycling in a designated cycling lane in Los Angeles when he was struck and killed by a motorist.
A native of Melbourne who had moved to Chicago just six months earlier, James saw things through a particularly clear lens: every decision he made, his father said, was “tempered by his desire to achieve a greater social good.” John Mark Nickels, a friend and coworker, added that James understood how fortunate he was and used his position to make “the planet the best possible place for humanity.”
In honor of James, his family has set up a scholarship fund to support students living at Whitley College, a residential college in Melbourne where James lived for three years and served as president of the Student Advisory Council. The scholarship will help offset the first year’s fees for students from rural backgrounds studying engineering or science at Melbourne University—James’s alma mater
