The weekend had a somber start as Team Members attended the Memorial Service for David Bennis on Saturday. Family members shared many fond memories and we got to hear about Dave’s pre-Team Evesham days. His memory will live with Team Evesham for years to come as he was such a big part of our organization and the local cycling community. This coming Sunday, we will have a special route planned starting from TAUNTON FORGE SHOPPING CENTER at 9:00am and ride past The Bennis House to show support for the family.
This past Sunday proved to be another one of those weather days… Scott D, Lisa and myself conversed many times about the ever-changing radar, if we would be able to ride, and if we should shorten the route we had planned. We took a gamble and decided to do the long route as rain wasn’t expected until after 1pm. As usual the weather apps were WRONG, and we got the trifecta – cold, wind, and rain – with about 3 miles left in our route….
We took that gamble because we wanted to remember another member of the cycling community, Ian Cameron. He was taken from the earth too young due to cancer. He was an employee at D&Q and a huge supporter of Team Evesham and local cycling. Each year Team Evesham has put together a Memorial ride in Ian’s memory along with Cynergy Cycling and Summit Cycling.
So join your Teammates this coming Sunday at 9:00am from Taunton Forge Shopping Center as we embark past The Bennis House and on to our ride.
