One year without Steve Vihel
Between a cold I’m having a hard time shaking and a two-month-old son at home, I was having a hard time sleeping last night.
I checked the traffic to my site for the day and noticed a few people were visiting from a post on DrunkCyclist.com and thought that was strange since I hadn’t seen anything posted about the site in a while.
I went to look and it turns out it was a post on their site linking to my story about my friend and bike shop owner Steve Vihel who died from hear failure.
I checked out date and realized Steve will have been gone for a year on Saturday.
Rereading the article and the comments people posted about him reminded me again how big his loss is to the biking community.
It’s always a little random and surprising when Steve has popped into my mind over the last year, but I know I’ll be spending my weekend remembering Steve and his family.
In addition to my post, you should read Josh Brodesky’s tribute to Steve too.
