Goodbye David Goldman

I saw on the YouTube channel Travels By Trike today that David, of the channel David Rides A Trike, passed away a couple days ago. David had many health challenges and the purpose of his channel was to inspire others with health challenges to not give up, but instead to get out and get some exercise, and feel better. He was successful at inspiring others, and continued to ride his trike until almost the end, but he lost his battle with cancer. His perseverance was remarkable.

RIP David. I occasionally watched his videos. He was certainly a trooper.

Yes, and he was also a Dead Head; he rode wearing a GD jersey and his trike sported a GD flag.

RIP David. I've only watched a few of his videos, but was impressed by his motivation.

RIP David.

So very sorry to hear this. David's videos were a very big influence on me in make the decision to start riding a recumbent trike. I will miss his never-ending positivity. I just wish that I could have a fraction of his attitude.
