man that is horrible. I always felt his posts were solid and clearly came from a nice and genuine person. I have wondered how often this happens to forum members and we never hear about it.....

Here is a link to the last post he made, the same day he was hit. Quite a beautiful parting gift to us.

My sincerest condolences. It always hits close to home when one of our brothers of the road leaves us way too early.

I don't know what to say other than to offer my condolences to anyone who knew him. Such a bad way to go and a terrible shame to lose a member of our community here on WW like this.

Condolences to his family. sometimes a body leaves an earth plane early. His soul is probably on some astral planet. I hope when he returns to an earth plane it is a time period when there are bikes and he can then pick up where he left off.

Sobering. This could happen to any of us. I have lost family and friends in the same way.

His photos of NZ cycling were lovely.

This is really horrible news - the cycling community has lost a great person. I'm not sure if anyone has seen any articles posted about him, but from all accounts, Gearjunkie was a pretty stand up guy. My condolences go out to his wife and children.
