Aaron Ryan Memorial Ride


On June 18th we will be having a memorial ride at in honor of our friend Aaron Ryan.
 
"He was a great friend, dedicated teammate, fellow WUSS and most importantly an amazing husband and father. June 17th would have been Aaron's 40th Birthday and June 19th he would have celebrated Father's Day with his daughter Natalie and expecting wife Pavi.
 

We will miss Aaron tremendously and want to use this day to ride with him in our hearts and minds and remember the great times we had, particularly on the bike whether in group rides or in competition.

We will also use this ride to help raise money for the Ryan Children's Scholarship Fund that has been set up to help his family. Since it would have been Aaron's 40th birthday, $40 a person would be great to raise, but feel free to give more! I will take a collection and cut a check to the Scholarship fund after the event." -Jim Casey

Not sure I knew Aaron, but sad to hear this news. Wish I could be there for this. Can't think of a better way to pay my respects to a fellow cyclist.
