Sad news today from the Davis Bike Club:
Lee Mitchell, a dedicated and devoted friend and supporter of cyclists everywhere, but especially of the Davis Bike Club, died this morning.
Lee will be remembered for his unfailing smile, his signature "Santa Claus" look, his never-changing wardrobe, and his red mini-van blasting music to get you over that next hill. Most of all, we'll remember him for his unfailing SAG support, his generosity of spirit, and his single-minded concern for the safety of cyclists on the road.
I understand plans for a memorial service are pending but no definite date is yet set. As I learn more, I will pass it on.
Our heartfelt condolences to Lee's wife, Shirley, to his family, and to all those who counted him among our friends.
President, Davis Bike Club
