Sunday Ride and Remembering a Lost Friend
Gina and I did a ride on the usual trail today. But I found out last night that a ride partner lost his life to cancer about a month ago. We rode together for a couple of years , last time being in 09 or 10. We lost another friend and ride buddy about 3 months ago, also to cancer (Boyd). But this guy was much younger, 42. Brain tumor, received treatments figuring he'd be back on the bike someday. We were also friends on facebook so I'd still hear from him even though he couldn't ride.
Sad story, just bought a new car, new condo and was living large, then this!
Doc said no driving or riding till he got better. That was 2 years ago so we thought he'd soon be riding with us again. Didn't happen.
He was a Socal forum member, Robert posted as Mad_One.
Today....I was tired from washing and wasxing our cars yesterday. No mercy, she made me pump the gas too!
