Best friends make Gilbert roads safer for cyclists

Withey Morris partner and Gilbert Chamber of Commerce board member Adam Baugh is working to make the town’s roads safer for cycling. After Adam’s friend, Evan Stubbart, was hit by a car riding his bike on Greenfield Road in Gilbert, the two decided to raise more awareness about cycling and the law which requires vehicles to give three feet of spacing to cyclists. They raised $35,000 to donate to a local non-profit (The Gilbert Parks and Recreation Foundation), and through that group, they partnered with the town of Gilbert on a bicycle safety campaign.
