It is difficult to accept that we will never go for another ride with Stan. Below is a photo Jan Bull took of Stan. This photo won The Daily Randonneur‘s photo contest in the “Spirit of Randonneuring” category. As our contest judge Gregg Bleakney wrote:
This category was tough to call but Stan just looks like the perfect poster-boy for rando-spirit. Nice warm light, big smile. Creative bull-clip map/notepad on front bar bag.
He will be missed by all of us. Stan always rode his own ride, and always finished brevets with a big smile and the craziest helmet hair I’d ever seen.
I am lucky to have known Stan. He brought something special to our group and we will miss him.
