Friday afternoon memorial ride for Lance David

Friends and co-workers of Lance David, the 54-year-old cyclist who died in a crash Wednesday in Seattle, will bicycle in his memory this afternoon.

The ride begins at 3 p.m. at Expeditors International, at Third Avenue and Madison Street in downtown Seattle, and proceeds south to the intersection of East Marginal Way South and South Hanford Street, where a white ghostbike has been mounted to mark the crash site. Mourners and cyclists are expected to gather at the intersection around 3:30 p.m.

David was riding north from Federal Way to his job at Expeditors when his bike collided with a right-turning truck, in an industrial area with rugged pavement, just after 7 a.m. He was known as a skilled cyclist who had ridden around Mount Rainier and finished many long rides and hikes. More background here from The Seattle Times, and from the Seattle Bike Blog.

He will also be remembered during a 45-mile ride Sunday on the Eastside, starting at 1 p.m. in Marymoor Park, as explained here by the Cascade Bicycle Club.
