February 3, 2009 Sheldon Memorial Ride?
I know it's a ways off but it's never too early to start planning for these things...
In memory of Sheldon Brown, I think it would be nice if BF had some sort of memorial ride on February 3rd, 2009. The first anniversary of his passing.
I believe having riders in every state in the US and the dozens of other countries represented here at BF would be a great tribute.
If I may suggest a theme for the ride, I think "Going the extra mile" would be fitting. What made Sheldon great was not just how intelegent and knowledgable about bikes he was, what made him truely a superstar was his willingness to go the extra mile to share his knowledge with the world. What I had in mind was individuals and small groups going on their 'standard' ride for the evening and then adding one extra mile in Sheldons honor.
I'm interested to hear your ideas, comments, suggestions, criticisms, whatever; just let me know what you think...
