What has this topic got to do with bicycle mechanics??
It has to do with Sydney.
He was a bicycle mechanic that helped alot of people here.
"the bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began...there was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of a bus to never-ever land."
**** Old Thread I know *****
I read an article about texting and driving and I couldn't help but think about sydney. I wonder what he would have to say about some of today's topics
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.
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.

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.
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.
I also appreciate the reminder. His daughter posted a nice update a few months after his death.. Requiescat in pacem
