||John Fauerby and Lynne Rosenbusch
John Fauerby and Lynne Rosenbusch were killed when they were struck from behind by a drunk driver while riding their tandem bike in Calvert County on Saturday afternoon, October 31. John and Lynne were avid cyclists and touched many lives. They were randonneurs, active with the D.C. Randonneurs, long-time members of the Potomac Pedalers and Frederick Pedalers, and active in the bike advocacy community as members of the Montgomery County Bicycle Action Group (MCBAG) for over twenty years, WABA, and Bike Maryland. It seems John and Lynne were active in all the local bike organizations from Oxon Hill and Anne Arundel to Frederick and probably beyond. This loss is felt very deeply in our community. Everyone is welcome to both events below to honor their lives.
