Hundreds at the Littmann Loop ride on Sunday


A very long weekend.  Went to Jeff Littmann’s service on Saturday, and skipped the last WORS race to take part in the Littmann Loop memorial ride on Sunday.  I rode to the ride from my house, and I was a little overwhelmed by emotion on the way there.  The church service the day before was a very formal Catholic service, the ride was an informal service on a whole different level.  As I rode to Attitude, I realized the enormity of the loss.  It was bigger than 1 man, it was all of the thousands of people’s lives that he had left his mark on.
Who will fill that gap now?
Billy O. said a few words before we took off.
Old co-worker of mine at Vic Tanny, Justin Migliano who is a photojournalist for CBS 58 was there and did a very nice piece on the news last night:

Jeff Littmann Memorial Ride – this Sunday


From: Doug Wambach @ Chiropractic Partners Cycling

“I can’t explain the sadness I feel for what has taken place in the last week.  I have gotten to know Jeff quite well this year and feel that I’m a better person for that.  Obviously this hits all of us hard as he was a very popular person with reason.  For me it was the long doc rides just chatting with him and 1 particular ride this year when I flatted near his shop, he fixed up the tire in seconds and told me to get out and ride, he refused to take my money.  For this reason it would be fitting that we do what any of us would want the other to do in this scenerio, ride our bikes.  Being together will also help in our pain.  I know many of us go to church on Sunday mornings, but lets make our peace this week out on the pavement, something Jeff would highly approve.  Let’s get together this Sunday at Attitudes in Pewaukee, leaving 9 AM,  and ride to Dousman (the same route he would on Sat mornings).  This summer Jeff routinely turned off on Waterville and headed back to the shop to open.  The route will be about 35 miles.   Lets ride in silence for the first 2 miles and pray for safe riding and for Kelly, Mike, Ashley and family.

Please join and spread the word to other riders/teams.”
