    Memorial update: There will be at 5pm

    There will be a memorial ride for our fellow cyclists today at the Polo Fields Golden Gate Park 5 PM. I've contacted the police and they are sympathetic and behind us all a 100%. So if you can let's get together and honor the now 2 cyclists who have lost their lives and also to support the cyclist who was injured and her dog killed by a hit in run driver last night.

    I can't make it, but I will be thinking of the fallen cyclists. Thank you for honoring their memories.

    I also won't be able to make it - is there any word about a memorial fund or favorite charity in lieu of flowers?

    Thanks Henry I zoned on that, I fixed it. I've been busy calling bike shops and news agencys. It was great that the cop I talked to was really very cool and supporting. This will be a really beautiful thing. It should be about raising awarness that we all need to watch each others backs and "Share The Road" hope you can make it brother.

    too early I think but there will probably be something. I started this on a whim so I haven't been in contact with anyone involved or family. I did contact Roaring Mouse and let them know. I would start there for info. I plan on cruising over around 6 or 7 and leaving flowers and a card.

    I won't be able to make it. Got out of the office too late. Thanks for organizing this. I'm there in spirit.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    Thanks for putting that ride together pete, I am most certainly there in spirit. With a little advance notice I can make it to just about anything, but I didn't see this until just now. Hope to hear about a solid turn out.

    Did I miss something about the "dog" also? man, what a downright lousy start to the season.
    The nicer the bike.. the more demanding your life becomes off it..
