There were 40 plus Violet Crown Club riders at the start of yesterday's Rosedale Ride. It was perfect weather for the event and a good ride. Just before the ride, Immediate VC Past President, Andy Austin, talked to the crowd about Violet Crown's long history with the Rosedale Ride. He mentioned that Bill Reams was an officer of the club when VC riders Kenny Lloyd and Richard Whittington along with their friend Al Godfrey first organized the ride 20 years ago. Bill participated in many of the Rosedale rides over the years. The large turnout was due in part as a show of support for Bill's family. We are all saddened by the passing of long-time fellow rider and friend, Bill Reams.
