John Pickens RIP

ARPANET architect John Pickens who worked for Cisco as a distinguished engineer killed while road cycling on Niles Canyon Road north of Fremont, California.

I can’t tell from the news report if this is a SWSS or an honest-to-goodness solo crash.

Condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

We also lost a road cyclist in south Santa Cruz County near San Andreas Road Saturday morning. In this case, police report the cyclist apparently suffered a “medical condition.”

  1. How tragic to lose two people on the road this past weekend. As for the police account, I agree that “he pulled over to let truck pass” is an easy way to explain “truck ran him off the road.” Especially if it’s the truck driver telling the story. I’m sure John didn’t get a chance to tell his side. Makes me sick.
