We love you Pcad. Rest well, buddy.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

We love you Pcad. Rest well, buddy.

R.I.P. Will miss you on Facebook. Always quick-witted, always opinionated, always funny. He could speak on a great number of topics and treated me like a friend even though we'd never met.

I personally owe him a huge debt of gratitude - his Addiction thread grew into a bedrock of my life and helped me get through a lot of tough periods of my life. You'll be missed old man.

I am having a hard time with this. Am I to understand that PCAD has died? I never met him. In the few years I have followed BF, I almost felt like I knew him. His thorniness, arrogance, elitist cycling attitude and superiority belied his love and affection for all things cycling and all real cyclists. Each and every time I have logged on to this site, I have, consciously or unknowingly, hoped I would click on a thread in which PCAD had commented to share his most recent sufferfest, shared his most recent purchase of this or that cycling product or chastised some fredly post by another newb. If PCAD has passed away, I hope those who have known and loved him know how much many of us on BF have loved this man that most of us will never meet. Rest In Peace. I am a better cyclist and human being for having shared BF with him.

I use to correspond with Pcad years ago on BF's about CAD type stuff. He was a knowledgeable and helpful person. Very sad news. Losing way too many Bike Forum people over the years due to car accidents. RIP.

Sad to hear this. I had avidly followed Peter's posts on BF. RIP, PCAD, and may your family find solace in knowing the high regard many of us at BF held you.
