The biker who was hit by a car and killed over the weekend was Matthew Manger-Lynch, 29. He was racing in the Tour Da Chicago, an alleycat street race.
Manger-Lynch, a Milwaukee native, moved to Chicago in 2004 and was a partner in Mandolin Catering. His obituary says he was "an avid cyclist, fisherman, chef, Packer fan, wine collector, sausage maker and committed outdoorsman," and he planned on opening his own wine and food boutique. His wife told the Trib that he was really excited about the Tour, and he was apparently near the front of the pack.
