A Sad Day in the Bike World

Cycling is fun, good for you, and can be the most rewarding pastime anyone can ever have. However, you are on two wheels and sharing the road with a tons of steel going MUCH faster than you are. It can be scary at times around your own home, let alone someone riding around the world living out a dream most of us could only imagine.

Sadly I had never heard of Mary Thompson image

But while cycling around the world they were struck and killed in Thailand after biking through Europe, the Middle East and China. The old westerns had the phrase “He died with his boots on!” Well these too surely did that! When you get a chance raise your glasses to two people who should be an inspiration to all bikers!
