This morning’s Memorial ride was a fitting tribute to Richard da Silva and Jared Dwyer and saw over one thousand cyclists join to gather to pay tribe to the two cyclists killed so tragical on the M4 last weekend.
Craig Proctor-Park, Head of Events, Safety and Security of Cycling SA had these fitting words to share with all gathered.
“I ride because I am addicted to the endorphins and to the adrenaline. I ride because the second my legs start turning circles I become a happier person. I ride because I love to feel the wind on my face and listen to the birds and bugs. I ride because it allows me to take out my aggression and anger. I ride because it stabilises my life and creates balance. I ride because going downhill at 40 mph makes me feel wild and free. I ride because even though I have ridden the route a 1000 times, I never know what is around the next bend.”
