The Heather Reu Memorial Ride Is Inconvenient

  • It's on a Sunday
  • It's the day after Independence Day
  • 4:00 P.M. is smack-dab in the middle of my all-sacred nap time
  • It's in the middle of the afternoon
  • It will be hot
  • There is no shade along the ride


Painful things shouldn't be painless. I'll see you there. Granted, a big thunderstorm directly overhead would be a consideration, but barring that I'll be wearing all black in the middle of a hot, sunny Sunday afternoon.

P.S.: It was a pretty big thunderstorm, and involved hiding out in a subdivision shelter while the hail, lightning and sheets of rain pounded for a bit. And then it cleared and I raced to catch up with the crowd. Not as many people as I would have liked (the storm was probably a factor), not as much media as one would hope, but we do what we can.

I agree. And yet I can't be there. Ride hard.

Glad you went, and it made the front page. Heather was a friend, and very active at my church. Many from our church were there but alas, we're a very small church. Did you know her? or were you repping bikers everywhere?
