All of us here at Wheels North! were saddened today to learn of the passing of Sheldon Brown. Sheldon is very well known in the cycling community, and while he wasn't around when Vic and Ray did their ride, it seems like it has been almost that long. Sheldon was a major proponent of cycling, and an expert on everything. In 2006, he was part of the Big Fix cros-country fixed gear ride.
We'll plan to commemorate Sheldon's memory in some way during Wheels North!--watch the web site for details: www.wheelsnorth.org
