For my ways are strange ways and new ways and old ways,
And deep ways and steep ways and high ways and low;
I'm at home and at ease on a track that I know not,
And restless and lost on a road that I know.

I am deeply saddened to read of Tom's passing, the man had an incredible passion for life. I will forever miss his blog posts where he oftentimes made me realize it's all about taking pleasure in the simple things in life, and it's not about having what you want, but wanting what you have.
RIP Tom Stormcrowe, you will be missed by so many!

I so appreciated Tom for his direction and advice. Even when I was acting like an arse.

Rubber on the road Tom. Thanks.

I've always thought the true measure of a person's life is weather or not they leave the world a little better for being in it. I didn't know Tom personally, but I know for a fact that his contributions to this site have had a positive effect on many people's lives. His family should be proud that he'll be fondly remembered by scores of people that never met him.

You can't say that about many people.

Well played, sir. Well played.

I never knew him but have seen his posts and he seems like a genuinely good guy. He will be missed.

Never met the dude, nor had any interaction with him on here but I thank him for starting and keeping this thing going and for inspiring and befriending a lot of my fellow cyclists here. It is always sad to lose one of our own but he clearly left a legacy which hopefully will outlive us all!

Pedal on, my wayward son, for there'll be peace when you are done!
