+1. I still use his site regularly as reference material. I have some of his articles printed in binders for shop use. I toast him every time I do wheel work as his site was my primary education primer for that skill.

Lets hear it for Sheldon!

... I can just barely make it over there, dabgummit. If it was farther or closer or further in the future. But now I have to make a decision.

Darn, discovered too late about the service. Going to be out of town. I will be at one of Sheldon's favorite spots though, Quebec.

I Wonder if he ever went to Schwartz's Smoked Meats in Montreal?

Every ride on Sunday can/will be a memorial ride for Sheldon. I'm doing mine here in California and my wife is wondering why I'm messing with the flag pole.

I'll be setting out on my bike by myself at 5pm (so I set off at the same time here in Spain, 6 hours ahead).
Doesn't matter where you are, you can still share in rememberance of this very special person.

Somebody please take pics...also a video to put up on youtube if possible. I am still lurking the Sheldon archives for clarification on the most basic of bike mechanics. He never fails.

Is there ample parking in the area? Can you recommend a place to park for those of us coming in for the ride? Thanks!
