- Dr. Miles Coburn was a well-respected professor of biology at John Carroll University and a genuine environmentalist. Coburn was killed in a collision with a car while riding his bicycle last year. The tragedy prompted 600 people of all ages and abilities to ride in last year's Ride for Miles. This week is the Coburn Environmental Symposium at JCU capped by the second annual Ride for Miles this Saturday.
