R.I.P. John

John Wessel died close to this spot in the Texas Hill Country in October 2010. He had not been in Texas very long, having moved here a short while ago to retire. It’s a truly beautiful spot on a quiet country road which follows the clear waters of Onion Creek and is surrounded by majestic live oaks.

John was a fine cyclist and took great pride in his two “top of the line” road bikes. On the road, he had the maturity that comes with years in the saddle but consistently demonstrated that he could easily “hang” with riders half his age.

He had quickly embraced our cycling club, participated in many of its activities and was already making plans to ride with us at the Easter Hill Country Tour in 2011. Sadly, we shall be riding without him.
