If you’re from the local area then you may already be aware of a memorial ride for Barrie Conrod this weekend. We are getting lots of requests to post the details here as well.
Family, Friends, Cyclists and supporting community in the Kitchener/Waterloo area are invited to put on a white shirt and participate in a group ride to celebrate the life of Barrie Conrod, a cyclist very much loved by his family and community. Barrie and his wife were riding on Herrgott Road near Boomer Line when he was struck from behind by an SUV this past Sunday.
This ride is being organized to invite the public to come together to mourn the loss of one of our own and to promote road safety in our region.
The procession will start at the Countryside Mennonite Fellowship Church in Hawkesville this Sunday May 13th at 3pm and heads south to the site of the accident where a “ghost bike” will be raised in his honour. This will be a slow 10km loop where participants are asked to wear a white shirt to honour the occasion.
