Memorial Ride for Jose on Sunday, August 16

From Jose's CaringBridge site:

The following is a note from Travis Dykstra of Jose's cycling team, regarding the memorial ride in honor of Jose this Sunday, August 16 at 2pm. All are welcome, and the ride will take us along Lake Wa. Blvd, around the south end of the lake, and back across I-90.

Hey Folks,

It has been nearly a month since our friend and teammate, Jose Hernando was hit on LWB on July 17th. This coming Sunday, August 16th, we would like to invite everyone to a no drop memorial ride around the south end of Wa. We will meet in front of Perts Deli in Leschi at 2:00pm where we will pass around a collection bottle to help out his wife and children. We will role out at 2:30PM and ride south on LWB to the scene of the accident where we will lay some flowers and take a moment of silence before continuing on. Details are posted on our website as well at www.supersquadra.comLake

I like to thank you all again for the thoughts, prayers and notes over the past 3 weeks. It speaks volumes to the closeness of this community and was very much appreciated.
