We have been able to obtain a permit from the City of Hilliard to conduct a ride in memory of our friend, Steve Barbour, who died as a result of the injuries he sustained when he was hit by a drunken driver on Cemetery Road, July 18th, 2009. The ride, escorted by the Hilliard Police, will proceed from the Heritage Trailhead to Cemetery Rd. where we will have a short ceremony and where we will place a "ghost bike" in Steve's memory. The ride will turn around at the Hilliard Plaza Shopping Center and return to the trailhead. We encourage participants to join the family at the Dutch Kitchen on Rt. 42, Plain City, after the ride. You may ride to the Dutch Kitchen or drive. Steve's family, will host the event at the Dutch Kitchen.

Some suggestions have been made as to how we may best honor our friend. Here are just a few: Wear lights, both on your bike and on your person. Wear a jersey that best "connects" you to Steve, e.g., Dutch Kitchen jersey, TOSRV and any other that you wore while riding with Steve.

In the interest of safety and as good examples to the community, helmets are required and all participants should ride no more than two abreast.

Please forward this e-mail to others who may be interested in participating. If you would like to volunteer for the event, please contact me, Gail Falkinburg at 861-4478.
