Suffice it to say, this is not the blog article I had in mind tonight. We just found out that Ed Hudson, a member of the Vicious Cycle Haute Route Team, has died in a terrible cycling accident.
Most of us on the team never knew Ed, since we haven’t done the race yet, but it is a sad day when anyone in our community dies so tragically. As Rob said, ‘it is the opposite of the intent of riding’. The team will be riding in his honor come August. In the meantime, it’s a sobering reminder of the vulnerability that is inherent in the activity we love so much. R.I.P, Ed.
