RIP Sheldon Brown

Sheldon BrownOne of the country’s most knowledgeable and passionate cycling advocates, Sheldon Brown, passed away on Sunday.

A VeloNews article points readers to a memorial blog for Sheldon Brown where they are encouraging people to submit their stories and memories.  I’d encourage anyone who knew Sheldon Brown to submit their comments to the blog.
