The bike had at least one red pack on the right side in the back. Such a tragedy. Our prayers go out to the person's family.

This was a tragic event. However, I do not know why this headline refers to a "bicyclist". This man left his bike at Axis, at the corner of Ravenswood and Alma, where he had been sitting for a while before this incident. He was not cycling anywhere when this happened, nor was he walking his bike across the tracks when he was struck.

The Almanac and its writer should be taken to task for this very, very misleading headline. I know someone who witnessed this. The young man deliberately threw himself under the train. His bike was across the street.
Don't your reporters talk with the police? The title implies the train struck the individual while he was biking, when in fact the train had started to pull out of the MP station and the individual approached the train several cars behind the engine.
Shame on you, Almanac, Sandy Brundage and Michelle Le for trying to sensationalize this tragic incident.
