Memorials

We honor and remember the passing of our fellow riders.

May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand. We know you’re riding with Heaven’s Chapter now.
