Looking Back

WheelPeople Editors

The November 2010 issue of Wheelpeople reported on the CRW Fall Century, including a volunteer contribution above and beyond.

Then there is Dave Jordan, who was out to enjoy the full century ride like a few hundred others. Special recognition goes to Dave, who was the first to discover an emergency road closure around mile 22, (there was a downed wire). He back tracked the route, got off his bike, and became a “human arrow” to direct cyclists around the road closure and back onto the route. Dave stayed in place for over a half hour until one of our volunteers could relieve him. They re-opened the road by the time the last few cyclists went through, but Dave saved the day for those who got to the road closure earlier.

 

Dave is still a CRW member, but is now living in Tucson, Arizona. We reached Dave who told us " I'm still riding and have been crewing for PAC Tour, off and on, for the past 10 or 15 years...and occasionally redirecting riders when there's a problem with the route." We are happy to hear that the spirit of helping others is still with Dave.
