A death in the bike family

In Rider Down on August 7, 2009 at 2:37 am

Bike blogs and Twitter feeds have been laden with sympathy the past couple of days for Fatcyclist over the loss to cancer of his wife, Susan. Elden says it best with his own post. I do not know Elden or Susan Nelson but like all of us in the cycling community felt we shared in her heroic battle via Elden’s moving updates the past few months. So I’ll join Cyclelicious, BikingBis, BikeMonkey, BikeSnob and multitudinous others in expressing condolences. It’s amazing how a virtual community can “gather” in a time like this, yet another testament to the growing power of social networking.

Update:
Elden’s full obituary on Susan.
