The following message from Tim Daniels of Bigfoot Bicycle Club, was sent to us to share with our readers.

Greetings Fellow Cyclists,

A memorial ride will be held this Sunday, March 10, 2013 to honor John Mello, and to raise awareness of cyclists. The ride will leave Arcata Plaza promptly at 10:00 a.m. We will ride through the Arcata Bottom, and cross the Mad River at the Hammond Trail Bridge. We will regroup at Roger's Market in McKinleyville for those who want to join us there. We will depart Roger's Market at 11:00 a.m. and will follow the Hammond Trail, Clam Beach Drive, 101 to Westhaven Dr. to Scenic Dr. to Patrick's Point Dr. to 101 and turn around at the Big Lagoon turn-off. The return trip will follow the same route with a stop at the memorial John's brother Joe has erected at the location of the collision.

It's a fairly long ride, so bring plenty of water and a snack. The weather forecast is looking good right now, but the event will be held rain or shine.

Please join us for part of the ride, or all of it. The pace will be maintained to allow for all cyclists who care to participate.

I hope to see you all there.
