While none of us here on Halcyon Avenue knew Schuyler Vassen personally, we certainly recognized his friendly face as we saw him from time to time in and out of the shop, hanging on the community bench, at the theatre, and an occasional wave as we passed one another on the streets riding bikes. Our hearts go out to his friends and family. I know they are hurting deeply over his untimely passing.
From the sidelines we recognize that there are very few deaths in the cycling community that are not in direct result of an automobile. I just hope that we can rally and make a purpose from his death. Helmets. I personally have smashed two helmets now and I thank my lucky stars I was wearing one when I did. We are all role models out there whether we know it or not. Someone close to us like a sibling or neighbor looks to up to us for direction and we should lead by example.
The event held at the Belcourt Theatre was a great start and I was humbled by the turnout. I’d like to commend everyone involved who worked diligently to make the event a proper one. Matt Pollmen at the Belcourt Theatre, all the artist who painted a helmet: John Hood, Duncan McDaniel, Kelly Kerrigan, Manda Hackney, Skip Pollock, JP Banas, Eric Powell & Harmony Korine. The bands: Colorfeels, The Grayces, Buffalo Clover, Jessica Breanne and The Electric Hearts, and everyone else involve- Toghether we raised $3500+ for the Workshop. Well done & thank you to everyone who turned out to participate and show support.
