Rider Down in GA

I got word that a business partner on one of my work projects was involved in a cycling accident while on a team training ride in Georgia this past Sunday. I was informed he would be out of work for awhile while he recovers. I was sent the link in the local GA paper. As I opened the link that was sent, I was only told half of the story. One of his teammates was killed while Jeff survived. Jeff is in critical condition and has gone thru several surgeries since the accident. The other cyclist, Scott Matty, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Here's the article of the tragic accident.

As most of us are logging in long base miles this time of year, please ride safe and try to keep yourself visible.

Ride On and Ride Safely.

I hope my next blog entry will be on a lighter note after my past two entries.

Man, sorry to hear this. I just read the story and my thoughts, and prayers, go out to both families of this tragedy.
