Hey Everyone. So I haven't been on the site much since that horrible day in February, 2006. It was the day we sadly lost Rick Sanchez, beloved husband, father, brother, son and friend to many. I was in the crash and suffered some serious injuries and am almost healed up 100%.
In honour of Rick and his passing just over a year ago, my sister (Rick's wife) and I and others have decided that it would be nice to start an annual ride. The ride date doesn't coincide with Rick's passing as it was chosen with concern for the weather and also makes a great way to kick of Motorcycle Awareness Month.
The proposed route would be from his memorial bench located at Kits beach in Vancouver and then proceeding to Squamish via the crash site. We will stop in Squamish for coffee and snacks and those that want to say a few words can and are most welcome to.
This ride is for all levels of riders and all riders are welcome. It will be a slow-paced ride and we will have cars coming up as well. So whether you ride or drive, we'd love to see you there.
The ride will go ahead as planned rain or shine!
Here are the details:

Everyone is welcome. Those who knew Rick. Those who have lost others and want to share their stories. And those who just want to pay their respects to an amazing person.Thanks everybody for your interest and we really hope to see a lot of you out there. It would make Rick so happy to see everyone out there for him. If you have any questions, please email me. I'll try my best to check the post and PM's but email is best: email@example.com.
See you guys Saturday May 5th!
