A local bicycle group is dedicating their monthly ride to Tom Palermo, who was killed in a crash while biking on Roland Ave. on Saturday.
The ride, organized by the Crank Mavens, is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m., and head north from the Washington Monument. A group is also planning to join the ride in Hampden around 8 p.m. Usually, the ride is women’s-only, but it’s open to anyone on Monday. Here’s the full message from the Crank Mavens:
Good morning, mavens. This weeks ride, starting at 7:30 from monument north will be a special memorial ride for bicyclist Tom Palermo who, while biking, was killed in a horrible accident on Dec 27th. Bring flowers, notes, candles, anything else you’d want to put at the memorial, and we can stop somewhere along the way to get some flowers and candles if you hadn’t had a chance to. In light of the special circumstances of this ride, anyone can join us- I know that there are many members of the community want to show their support as well. See you at 7:30.
