Hospitalized biker is a beloved friend of Babes on Bikes
On Saturday February 22, Lynn Kristianson headed out for a 200k bicycle ride, just as she had on so many days over the last several decades. The day started out cold but warmed up to the 50’s, making it a perfect winter riding day. Within 30 miles of the finish, a man driving a Honda CRV hit Lynn and her friend Maile Neale. Maile was hit with a glancing blow of the vehicle. Lynn was hit directly and was critically injured. The man in the car drove away leaving two people lying in the road. Many other citizens stopped immediately to help and the paramedics from Anne Arundel County and Prince George’s County Maryland arrived quickly. Lynn was transported by helicopter to the Shock Trauma unit at UM Baltimore Medical Center.
Since arriving at the Shock Trauma unit, Lynn has received the best care possible to save her life and bring her back to her family and friends. Her husband Gordon has been as close to her side throughout as is possible. Her mother Phyllis is also on vigil.
