Here is a message from Captain John Walker of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department that he asked we pass along to our members:
My name is John Walker and I ride with Citrus Valley Velo, a cycling club out of Redlands, California. Recently, a longtime member, Brian Sabel, was struck by a hit and run driver and ultimately succumbed to his injuries. We are having a memorial ride in Brian’s honor on April 27th and would like to invite members of your organization to join us.
We anticipate media will be present and would like to take the opportunity to seek the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect in addition to raising awareness for cyclist and motorist alike.
Please feel free to call should you have any questions.
Unfortunately the date conflicts with our Breathless Agony Ride. However, if you live in the area and are not involved with our ride, please consider attending this important event.
