Vale Richard Ballantine

I was saddened to learn over the weekend that Richard Ballantine, author of "Richard's Bicycle Book" has died.

Richard's Bicycle Book was an enormous influence on my riding and love and cycling, and I've been recalling fondly, afternoons spent planning rides, repairs and civil disobedience while turning it's pages.

I hope he is turning the pedals even now.
