A sad day in Fort Collins

It is a sad day in Fort Collins. I attended a memorial of a fellow rider, Rebecca Allen, who died after severe head trauma caused by a drunk driver hitting her and her riding partner from behind.

Her riding partner, Jennifer Garvey, is wife of my friend and colleague at Lee's Cyclery. She was injured but was able to attend. 

Many cyclists answered the call to attend the memorial and Lee's Cyclery actually closed both stores for almost 3 hours so staff members can attend the mid day service.

Be safe out there. But I am not sure how we can avoid drunk or unfriendly drivers.

The bike that took so long

The bike that was 75% built before my accident is finally complete. Painted, assembled and test ridden. Here are a few pictures

It has been another long period since I last updated. Recovery is still in progress but symptoms are bearable and I can do most anything. The most important thing though is that I just finished my first complete frame after my almost career ending accident. I am very happy how things turn out along the process and I was paying extra attention to how my body reacts to the work of framebuilding.

There is a lot to do to pick up whatever momentum there was before the accident, but I am really quite happy I am building on.

A few pictures of this frame that is going to TBE after paint.
