    Ken Kifer
    Ian Hibbell
    The guy from Highlands Ranch right near where I live - about 65yo - who was widely respected for his bicycling knowledge and posts in BFN.

    All killed on their bicycles

    Who else?

    Sound like a life well lived.
    I'm sure he and Sheldon will have lots to talk about.

    If I understand correctly, Ken Kifer made a transition while riding.

    Just a short time ago I ran upon a website with his stamp on it...very worthy.
    I mention as a sign of respect.

    Evidently this avoidable tragedy was caused by another of lifes ar..holes racing his mate on a public road.

    Would you rather live a life of where you ride in countries all over the world and eventually die in a biking accident at 74, or quit riding at say 55 and then live until you die a natural death at 85?

    I bet if you had given Hibbell the choice, that he would have picked the same path that he took.
