Sandeep Singh was allegedly hit by a truck and dragged for nearly 30 feet after an argument with the driver of a pick up truck driver who allegedly hurled racial slurs at Singh and his friend. According to Singh’s friend Baldey Singh, the duo were standing on the street when a truck pulled up nearby and the driver yelled a racial slur at them.

In protest, Singh stood in front of the truck, wanting to call in the police. But the driver started the vehicle and allegedly ran him over. Reports say Sandeep was dragged roughly 30 feet down the street and his body finally came loose from the truck, which kept on going.

Footage from the surveillance camera on the street showed the men getting into an argument and then a few minutes Sandeep trying to stop the pick-up truck from fleeing the scene.

He is then seen being hit by the truck and dragged some distance.

The Sikh Coalition, which is a Rights group, has called for a hate crime probe into the incident.

China : Xingjiang province (June 2014)

Sandy desert, cities-oasis, torrid canyons, snow mountains, plains and grasslands : Xingjiang landscapes are very diversified. I ve met mainly Uighurs, Hans and Kazakh but many other ethnic groups live here. Some people have bright hair and colored eyes.

It s already central Asia and I could enjoy bread and cheese :D I arrived exhausted in this parking area after 151km and three punctures in a day (With no food and short on water, I had to complete this distance). Immediately, these truck drivers invited me to their table : friendly atmosphere, great uighur food and drinking games. In the next morning, a group of Chinese Kazakhs saw me packing my tent up and invited me for breakfast in the same restaurant.

Humans are awesome ! Zhu yu wei is a 19 years old policeman on duty in an internet cafe in Hami. Everywhere in China, a chinese I.D.

is required to use a computer. So he offered me to use his own computer and to stay overnight in his home. We communicated with google translate.

He told me to be discreet because it s not allowed to host a foreigner without going to the police and register. Nobody does it even policemen :) . I slept a night with these labourers who are building the very long rail bridge behind.

They believed that my pictures of Myanmar old trains were taken in a museum-park. Their strong desire to communicate was much more helpful than any English skill. We had a lo of fun together.

Nice to meet you, Liu Chao ! Yisilamu, Uighur, is passionate about languages and would like to travel. He lent me his I.D.

to allow me to use a computer. He invited me for lunch and I spent the night in his home. Such a warm and welcoming family !

Emerging from a canyon leading to Turpan s depression under the sea level. It s he hottest place ad China and temperature were already getting close to 40 C at the end of May. These buskers bring good vibes in Turpan city.

The drummers were curious about my bike. They saw my trumpet and we jammed together for the most intrigued audience. See the video Smoking the narghile with the young neighbours in Wu s flat who contacted me spontaneously via couchsurfing.

Many thanks for the great food, the map of central asia, this 4th shower in china and this first hangover since I left Bangkok :) Without the tremendous headwind, cycling along the ancient silk road would have been so enjoyable ! Water and cities oasis all along the way to fill my bags with melons, raisins and nut. Snow mountains and sandy desert often take part of the same landscape !

Policemen are absolutely everywhere. They checked my passport so many times that they can easily trace my itinerary in the whole China. I ve been taken 3 times to a policestation for a questioning.

I had to leave the towns of Aba (Sichuan) and Lenghu (Qinghai) immediately. However, most policemen were very friendly. They gave me water, food, shower, took pictures with me, played with my horn and even had a try on my bike :) Chimay bleue, Duvel, Maredsous triple, Leffe brune, hoegaarden !

Stucked for 8 days in Urumqi waiting for the kazakh visa, I had a great time with Hongxiang and the other travelers staying in his open house. Selfless and jovial, he was about to walk around china, without map, about one year until he runs out of money. I hope your trip is going well ! (I m a bit frustrated because I m limited to roads and can t explore the most remote regions).

Welcoming foreigners is definitely part of Asian culture. In this store, the boss who never allows employees to have lunch inside, made an exception because of me. Locals say that Urumqi is dirty and is changing slowly compare with eastern cities of China.

It still the biggest, cleanest and most modern city I visited since Singapore. Countless enormous shopping centers, color lights everywhere, I feel like in a science fiction movie. What a contrast with rural area where families are living in yurts !

When I hear sheep bleat in the morning, it s time to wake up. Shepherds, often curious, usually look at me packing my gear up. One even helped me without saying any word, holding my bike while I was fitting the panniers on the racks.

I really appreciate when locals don t expect me to understand their language (it quite rare). How far are these mountains?

40 km?

60 km? Estimate distance is very hazardous.

So far, this landscape hardly changed in 50km It was hard to refuse when this truck driver stopped and insisted a lot to take me up the pass. More than just a lift, it was a real selfless act and a desire to communicate. In 15 km of uphill, he made sure I left his vehicle the stomac full of nuts and biscuits :) Asking to take a portrait can easily break a bond forged in a short time, and I often refrain myself for fear of rejection.

I don t need any picture to remember this Uighur grand-mother. She invited me to eat bread (nan) soaked in salted milk tea. After disapproving my unraisonnable journey, she joked and said that she would ride her horse to Singapore.

I won t forget this young Kazakh on a horse, very surprised to see me. He followed me a few minutes without any word but with a radiant smile. He finally left in full gallop.

Oufti, so fast ! From a cold high plateau to a deep warm valley. Grass, river, trees, honey, jam, so comfortable !

I feel a home. This woodcutter came out after he heard my trumpet. I had to open my panniers and show all my gear to satisfy the extreme curiosity of these women who even took a ride on my bike :) Lonely planet writes about the Carrefour french supermarket in Urumqi, but don t even mention the Tianshan canyon Definitely worths the side trip !

I ve met Sho Hu in a restaurant around midnight in Bayinbuluke. He quickly offered me to sleep in his flat (a single room with no electricity. The only thing he owns is a beautiful chinese blanket).

He invited me for breakfast. Classic Uighur food : polo rice with beef and skewered lamb. Thanks !!!!

In this town, I saw many strong friendships between Hans and Uighurs. I left Sho Hu full of emotion. A half hour later, I pedaled to Min who is biking back to Taiwan after a working holiday in Germany (her blog, her facebook page).

Then, Zhangbo, a beekeeper, invited us for a long chat in his yurt and gave us lot of honey ! Cheers ! Further in the downhill, we stopped to meet WengChengXi on the roadside.

Calling himself a survivor , he hunts small animals and picks eatable plants to provide most of his food. Then started one of the most intense time I ve ever had. During six hours, we were in a different world, hardly noticing the noisiest trucks passing.

We had been traveling alone for a long period, carrying a harmonica, a guitar and a trumpet. Sometimes lonely, bored, or having a hard time, we could understand each other perfectly. Sharing our experiences and stories, singing songs, improvising together with cries and laughters.

Just walking on air !The cold that came with sunset eventually put an end to this magic afternoon. The survivor continued to climb alone and probably wrote a song in the evening. I cycled to Nalati with Min who wanted to rest in a guesthouse.

Min asked to pitch our tents in the backyard of a youth hostel because, as long distance travelers, we can t really afford a bed. The friendly staff offered us 3 nights for free in a room :) Jovial people, great food, too much beer ! On the saddle, I usually enjoy these landscapes, think about the past, make plans for future.

After meeting Min and the survivor, I just felt gloomy. We had much more things to talk about and joy to share. I crave a free world without visa restrictions which would have allowed us to meet longer.

Fortunately, Uighurs, Kazakhs and Hans were so nice the last 5 days, as if they wanted me to leave China in a good mood :) A group hailed me to meet and drink a cold yogurt.

3 policemen on duty invited me for breakfast. This lovely couple stopped me to give me their dinner and 2 melons. In a hurry to reach the border, I also had to refuse 2 invitations to stay overnight because they occurred too early in the day.

I took a break to admire the green scenery. Majin, Maira, Sanat and Aiden who live nearby quickly invited me to stay overnight in their yurt. Most people in these grasslands have motorbikes and solar panels to charge their smartphones.

However, their home are still traditional, embellished with colorful carpets. with a huge pile of warm blanket. May I show you more landscapes?

ABC s Cheryl Jennings speaks with SFMTA Director Ed Reiskin. Image: ABC 7 Pedestrian and bike safety was the theme of the half-hour show, during which Jennings interviewed SFMTA Director Ed Reiskin; the family of Dylan Mitchell, who was killed on his bike by a truck driver in the Mission; SFPD Traffic Company Commander Mikail Ali; and Cheryl Brinkman, vice chair of the SFMTA Board of Directors.

Jennings also spoke with Caltrain spokesperson Christine Dunn, who addressed the issue of deaths at railroad crossings. The show begins with a segment featuring Walk SF Executive Director Nicole Schneider, who explains why streets like Van Ness Avenue are so dangerous. It s a great overview of street safety in SF, especially for folks just getting introduced to the issues.

If we don t do something different, Reiskin said, people will continue to die while getting around on SF s streets.

We re absolutely committed to doing something different, to redesigning our streets.
