Final Notes for the Big 2014 Event
May 12, 2014
As we all make our final preparations for the 2014 event we have just a few final announcements to make.
Tragic Passing of One of Our RoS Organizers
We've recently - sadly been informed by our Danbury CT USA Ride of Silence organizer, that former Ride of Silence organizer Thomas Steinhert-Threlkeld of Weston CT was killed last Oct. while cycling, the 1st known death by a motorist of an RofS organizer. Thomas had previously organized a RofS in Weston, Farifield & Westport CT, from 2007 thru 2012. The Danbury CT RofS will pay a special tribute to Tom this year. The RoS board requests that all event organizers recognize Tom for his efforts over the years to remember and honor others and to raise awareness of all our rights to ride safely on our roads around the world. Watch for more posts on the RofS Facebbook pg. and website for more tributes to Tom.
Ask someone who's not riding to do this please!
