Cycling advocates say he was an experienced cyclist who routinely rode the corridor on East Marginal Way South to work. Mourners have left flowers, a white ghost bike and a card nearby. In the crash, shortly after 7 a.m., David was heading north on his bicycle when he collided with a truck that was making a right-hand turn from South Hanford Street to head north on East Marginal.

David, a Federal Way resident, was participating in Cascade Bicycle Club’s Commute Challenge this month, along with teammates from Expeditors International, a Seattle-based freight company. He was also registered to ride in this year’s Group Health Seattle-to-Portland Bicycle Classic.

Later this month, there will either be a public memorial ride organized for David, or he will be remembered during the annual Ride of Silence, on May 15 this year, said Don Brubeck, founder of West Seattle Bike Connections.
