    Lost a friend yesterday. We rode together for years, until about 3 years ago he and his family moved to Nocona, TX. We talked on the phone about every 3 or 4 months. I thought on Friday that I should call him and then got busy and decided I would call later.
    As I understand what happened he and his son were on a memorial ride of some sort on Saturday ( which was unusual for him, he didn't ride in big group rides here). Anyway it is my understanding that someone in front of him stopped suddenly, he hit his brakes and went down hitting his head on the pavement.
    Hard to take.
    Everyone ride safe.

    That really sucks sorry to hear about that, last Saturday leaving a party with friends the light changed a little too fast for the guy in the front, If I didn’t swerve to the left I would’ve hit my friend in front of me.....It only takes a second!

    Very sorry to hear this tragedy and your friends and families loss. I'm not a big group rider just for that reason. God bless

    My deepest condolences. I also am no longer a fan of riding in big groups with people you don’t know.
