    *A moment of silent riding for sydney and all others who have died on the roads this year*

    It has to do with Sydney.

    He was a bicycle mechanic that helped alot of people here.

    I haven't been on this forum very long and lurk more than I post. I'm happy that you bumped this old thread, but sad about what happened to sydney. I never knew sydney but it was an eye opener reading the first couple of pages. Without the bump, I'd have likely never seen it. Thanks.

    I see I'm not the only one who thinks of sydney this time of the year.

    The article & video is still up.

    RIP, sir, and warm thoughts to his family and loved ones.

    Thanks for the reminder. Sidney was an active member here when I first joined the forum. Gruff, sarcastic, didn't suffer fools lightly and extremely knowledgable and helpful. He is still missed.

    Sidney sounded like another member here...

    I don't know if this was mentioned previously but The Ride of Silence is exactly the vehicle to memorialize riders like Sidney. Here's the website link.
    ::Ride of Silence:: Home - '0 words spoken - A million powerful memories"
    I've organized the Rochester event for the last 5 years and still find it a moving experience. Each year we add more names to our list of those who need remembering, sad. Andy.

    Pretty much my thoughts too. sydney was one of my all time favorite posters.
    My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.

    Not only this forum, he was very active on at least 3 other forums but used different aliases, rustycogs and Biker Billy were also the man known here as sydney. He helped a lot of cyclists and kept us entertained as well.
