I was very sad to hear the news about Troy. He was a very upbeat person, always ready with a light joke or something interesting to say. I was chatting with him on a recent ride and he told me he had met his yearly goal of riding 10,000 miles and doing 1 Million feet of climbing. Wow. He took great pictures on rides, even submitting a picture to the Photo contest of a “Roadside Kiss” with Mona and me. He greatly added to the joy of riding HRU. I will miss him.
I wanted to do something, so I put up a wreath on the road near where the accident happened. It's on the side of the street going North on Los Gatos-Saratoga Rd (Hwy 9) at Carnelian Glen Ct. It’s just about across the street from the turn off to Villa Montalvo.
