I’ve been away from the computer for a day or so (it’s been great, thanks) and I come back to these emails.
Subject: fucked up news – biker down
I was just riding out old spanish trial south of the park here in Tucson and the road was closed off because some driver took out a tanned dude on a blue trek (only saw his legs).
don’t know any more than that. Just turned around, rode home slow, and kinda quiet appreciating the fact that I am living, and the rubber is still rolling under me.
gonna go build a new and toast blue trek dude.
Peace, and happy riding.
This was two slots up in the inbox.

If I’ve been on Old Spanish Trail once, I’ve been on it a hundred times. I know that road pretty well. Everyone in Tucson does. We’ve all ridden it. My condolences to his friends and family.by
