A long ride in memory of a friend. It wouldn't have been long for him.

Three years ago I was riding the LVIS Audax in memory of Steve Worland, and yesterday it was for another of the good guys, taken long before their time. And yet again, it was the kind of ride that makes you remember why you do this stuff. Mike would have loved it, and beaten me round by hours, and ridden home to Wales. Ride on.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

The Hill WI stop on the Ball Buster is the very best thing ever. In fact all the stops on that ride are fantastic. I can't recommend it highly enough.

A very fitting tribute...

It was a smashing day out  1 and was nice to ride with you, if only for a short time (whilst I grumbled about paying postage for socks!)

Yet another year when I question why I dont ride out to Hill for the first sunday of the month  1 how's about a Road.cc ride out to Hill?   1
