RIP Dr. Dan Kliman

A body found in an elevator shaft in San Francisco over the weekend has been identified as Dan Kliman, MD, a passionate and outspoken cycling advocate.

Although the Chronicle describes Kliman as a man who kept to himself, friends and cycling advocates in San Francisco and the East Bay are shocked and saddened at his death.

Dan, who practiced internal medicine in Alameda, California, was a part of Chicago Critical Mass when he moved to St. Louis to start Critical Mass there. He moved in November 2002 to the East Bay where he started a Critical Mass in Alameda.

This morning, Jym Dyer went to the building where Dan was found and found Dan’s Bike Friday still parked outside.

There are photos of Dr. Dan shouting at an anti-Israel rally here.
