For everyone who was part of this event, you know what we mean when we say that the day was incredible. For those of you who missed it, you’re in luck. You’re going to get another chance. On Saturday May 29, 2010, we’re going to do this again. We’re going to ride again to remind people how important it is to keep the roads safe. More importantly, we’re going to ride again so no one forgets our friend. That’s right folks, we’re riding again for Dave.
After Dave Sherman was killed riding his bike last October, a few close friends decided to honor him by putting together a little ride. It was their desperate attempt to do something positive after this tragic and senseless loss. Dave’s friends hoped they could manage to convince as many as 50 riders to participate. They were wrong, really wrong.
On November 15, 2009, more than 600 cyclists showed up to celebrate Dave Sherman’s life. Fast riders showed up and so did slow ones. Riders showed up wearing fancy kits and they showed up wearing jean shorts. They showed up with Pinarellos and they showed up with rusty old tandems. Teenagers showed up and so did geriatrics. They all showed up as a living testimony to an amazing cycling community. Some laughed that day, some cried, and most of us did a lot of both. Everyone was touched by the overwhelming feeling that they were part of something special.
