Sorry for the cut and paste job....

Dave Zabriske is comming "home" and will ride with the group.


Please join us on October 15, 2005, for the second annual
Josie Johnson Memorial Ride to unite
the cycling community and promote bicycle safety.

The Josie Johnson Memorial Ride will meet at Sugarhouse Park (south end
terraces) at 12 noon, ride to the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon for a
moment of silence, and return along Wasatch Drive back to Sugarhouse Park.
The ride is about 21 miles in total length. There is no fee to participate.

Mayor Rocky Anderson and local bike advocates will address bicycle safety
in our community at the gathering in Sugarhouse Park. Project leaders on
the Wasatch Blvd and Big Cottonwood Road bike lane projects will share
updates at the gathering at the mouth of Big Cottonwood. Also, the Salt
Lake County Bicycle Advisory Committee (SLCBAC) will display work and
solicit feedback on the county-wide bicycle route map project. Tour de
France stage winner Dave Zabriskie will lead the ride to keep the pace nice
and slow.

This ride is in remembrance to those killed in car collisions while riding
their bicycles and honors Josie Johnson, who was killed while riding up Big
Cottonwood Canyon on September 18, 2004. Josie was an avid road and
mountain biker, overall outdoor enthusiast, and aspiring doctoral student
at the University of Utah. Bright-colored jerseys and t-shirts will be
available; donations for the shirts and jerseys
will be used to fund the Utah Bicycle Coalition, a nonprofit
organization dedicated to bicycle safety.

It isn't everyday you get to ride with a Tour de France stage winner and
keeper of the golden fleece (at least for a few days)!

Thank you for your interest.
