The cycling and endurance communities have lost some very special people in the last month or so. We all can relate to why we have chosen this as a part of our lives, it hits close to home. THough nothing like those whose homes it directly involves. So, with the friends and families of those involved my thoughts and prayers are with you.
We all will find our own time and in our own way to deal with loss. For me, i chose to feel that joy of saddling up and clipping in on the bike, as well as those tailwinds as a reminder that we are all connected. That our choices affect so many, and in ways more than we know. Also to honor how lucky, privileged, and blessed we are to have the opportunities that we do.
Also, I chose to donate to the Steve Tilford Memorial Fund in order to honor and keep his legacy alive. He represents so much of why we all love this sport, but even more so - his passion and enthusiasm for life itself was very evident. So to remember those we’ve lost, in each joyous pedal stroke, each gust of tailwind that pushes us on, you live on in our hearts.
