To my friend Mark Simmons. You will be dearly missed.

Mark was a marathon runner who had a passion for mountain biking. He was my mountain biking buddy. Whenever I'd want to go for a ride, he'd be there. His life ended last Thursday night by a drunk driver. A drunk tow truck driver with 2 previous convictions of driving while under the influence.

This was a non-cycling related accident, Mark was on foot. None the less, I feel the need to express my sorrows to the community that we both belonged to, the cycling community.

Goodbye to a good friend. You will be missed by all.

Note: Mark is in the centre wearing dark blue, I'm on the far right wearing grey.

beer is always cold, and the bikes clean themselves.

Didn't know ya, Mark, but you will be missed. If you rode a bike, you were our friend.

"If you rode a bike, you were our friend"

It doesn't matter if you're on a BMX, MTB, road, bent, etc. If you share the same passion as I...I'll tip my hat to ya.

Loosing sporting companions seems especially hard. When you suffer together the bonds grow thick.

Organize a group ride in his memory. It'll be a nice time for you and his other friends to reflect and remember.

Hang in there.

As a cyclist, you will be missed by our entire community.
Sorry for your loss. May the drunk that did it never sleep another night without nightmares of his horrendous deed.
We lost a friend in my club, and have a memorial ride for him nmPaul

This past Saturday, a group of Mark's friends got together for a ride in Mark's rememberance.

From left to right (Sepanta Dorri, Keith Marshall, Reg Mohammed, Andrew Waugh and myself, Fern Amorim).

Rest in peace Mark. Thanks for the memories.
