Cyclist Shot in PDX Road Rage Incident Fundraiser

On Tuesday, May 5th around 10:30pm, Mike Hilbrandt was riding his bike home when he was shot by a motorist in a senseless act of road rage violence. The bullet struck and shattered his left forearm. Mike has a long road of surgeries and rehab ahead, and not all will be covered by insurance. Between medical expenses and the loss of income from being unable to work, we are asking the community to rally behind Mike and Monica and provide any financial support you are able.

Most of you know Mike as a tireless, selfless helper; be it serving as a medic at OBRA races, training and responding to calls with Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, or guiding at Mountain Bike Oregon. He has been an active member of the PDX cycling community since 2004, and is also active in the Oakridge cycling community, where he and Monica spend much of their free time.

We know these are uncertain times for everyone. If you are able, please consider donating to help defray the considerable medical expenses for Mike and Monica so they have one less thing to worry about during his recovery. Hopefully, we’ll see Mike on the mend and back to pursuing his passions of cycling, climbing, and being outdoors as soon as possible.
