After he was hit by a car, chef’s friends ease the pain - Luck wasn’t riding with Jose Santamaria the night he was left for dead. He’s the beloved chef I told you about two weeks ago who was struck by a hit-and-run driver while riding his bicycle home from another long shift at downtown’s Mayahuel restaurant. Most nights, Santamaria’s son drove him home. But on May 17, “a beautiful night,” Santamaria decided to ride. He was struck near Sacramento City College around 1:30 in the morning.

John Boyer's Lifelong Passion for the Environment culminates in his Multi-Tasking Bike Shop, Edible Pedal - He now owns Edible Pedal, the quaint and multi-faceted bike shop located in the Old Soul alley. From here he spreads his passion for sustainability that he acquired at such a young age. Edible Pedal first started as a small food delivery service in the downtown/Midtown area back in 2009, but quickly grew into the dynamic facility for everything anti-vehicle, pro-local and sustainable. For years, Boyer worked as a seasoned server at several local restaurants. His jobs in the service-industry left him dried out and distracted him from his humble roots as an active environmentalist. One of two of his kids lived in Spain, so he took an extensive trip to see her, only packing a light foldable bike and some essentials. For weeks, he traveled along the Spanish coast via bicycle and train, not once opening a car door. Alia Cruz in Submerge Mag.
