Roger du Toit was a prominent architect who left his fingerprints all over our city. He was hit by a car while biking in Rosedale, and he passed away last Monday. Today was the memorial ride.
More people showed up that would be expected from the fact that it was bucketing rain for the hour before the appointed meeting time. There were quite a few people from his firm, and they were passing out T shirts with a picture of Roger.
The collision site. Apparently this intersection was approved for a four way stop in February by City Council, but the signs were not in place. There is high speed traffic here with cars coming on and off Mt. Pleasant about 40 m away.
Video from today. You’ll note the one SUV driver who insisted on passing everyone by driving in the left hand lane. God forbid that he be delayed by even a minute.
