RIP John Ryan

Long distance rider John Ryan, featured in Melissa Pierson's " The Man Who Would Stop At Nothing" was killed today in an accident. A sad day in the long distance rider community.

Re: Sad News

Yes, very sad indeed. I learned about this a couple days ago from another source.

An extremely unpleasant and grim reminder that for all of us, one mistake by someone else or us could be our last. At his proven level of experience and performance, many will be wondering exactly what caused this to happen- certainly as a highly experienced urban rider he had all the knowledge needed for safe-as-possible riding.

Another high mileage BMW rider killed a few months ago was said to have made the error that caused their death. Reports so far do not clarify what really happened here.

Condolences to his friends and family.
