Kerry's Memorial Bike Ride

 On July 13, 2008, Bike ABQ  http://www.bikeabq.org/ , a bicycling advocacy group in Albuquerque, New Mexico, sponsored a memorial bike ride for Kerry.  Although Kerry lived in Colorado, I am a member of Bike ABQ and we honor the memory of cyclists and pedestrians killed by motorists with memorial bike rides.  We rode along a beautiful route on a gorgeous day to honor my lovely girl's memory.  My son rode in front of me most of the way and those are orange boxers - not his tush! - that you see in the photos:-)

 

Interestingly enough, my association with Bike ABQ began during her life and yet was due to her.  I had her old bicycle that was just a wreck - missing a wheel, missing the sprocket, rust, dirt, you name it - it probably was wrong with that bike.  I wanted to fix it up for her, but didn't know very much about bicycle repair.  I found a local bicycle repair course, but it was at a time when I was going to be out of town.  I contacted the instructor and she said that she would work with me one-on-one if I would either volunteer at Bike-a-Pallooza or join BikeABQ.  I did both and we fixed the bike up.  It was in beautiful condition when I took it up to Colorado for Thanksgiving and Kerry was most pleased.

 

I am grateful beyond words to the members of BikeABQ (and to Julie Luna in particular) for honoring Kerry's memory with this bike ride.  Sadly, there have been a number of cyclists and pedestrians whose memories we honor this year.   I also thank all the riders who came out and rode in memory of Kerry.  Last but not least, I want to thank Fat Tire Cycles http://www.fattirecycles.com/  for agreeing to loan bikes to out of town riders.
