The local community lost a local legend. Clyde, better known as Bud was a friend to all of us in the local Mountain bike community. It was his group of friends/riders that got me introduce to this great recreation and so many people that shared a passion for it. I was a young energetic youth with no etiquette. He taught us so much more than to just ride fast. It was about being out with friends from all walks of life, and sharing in an activity that is plain fun.
I can tell you I will miss him. Miss seeing him smile and shake hands whenever we saw each other. Even though we didn't ride much together anymore, it wasn't really about riding as much as it was being part of a group, a community that shared in laughter and fun. It is time to tip our hats with utmost respect for a great community leader. The past time he loved and shared with so many people, we can only hope to do the same. I think we can all say Bud epitomized a stand up, proactive and good person. Rest in Peace.
