"Live life like today is the last day of life you will have. 
You never know for sure if you will see tomorrow!" ~ Bob Bailey

I just want to say how sorry I am to all of those who were close to Bob.
Last I spoke to him, I was shaming him into sticking with his single speed through Krug. Which he thanked me for later...
I think at least to me, why this is so shocking news, is that it is hard to lose someone who was so full of life.. Bob may have been 50 but he was defiantly 25 on the inside!

Did you lose something?

Did anyone happen to get home after last nights group ride on the trails only to realize they no longer have a bicycle, but instead a uni-cycle?

My brother is bringing me a wheel that he found last night at Corby pond. Let me know if you are missing one.
