Brad Lewis Memorial Ride

posted by DL Byron on April 17, 2006

On Sunday, a peloton of cyclists, hundreds of us at least 4 blocks long, rode from Recycled Cycles to Seward Park. It was a memorial ride for Brad Lewis who died during a race last week. The family joined us for the ride. I didn’t really know Brad personally, just as a racer. I met his mother before the ride in an emotional exchange when she thanked me and my team mate for the support. Her eyes welled up, I got choked up, and told her how sorry I was for her loss.

It was a sad, but supportive day and I’ve never seen the racing community together as a whole like that before.

I wish all those that knew Brad well.
