Tom Milton passed away while riding the Devil Mountain Double on April
24, 2010. Tom was inducted into the California Triple Crown Hall of
Fame in 2009 in recognition of him completing 50 Double Centuries in
the California Triple Crown Series. He was also known to many cyclists as the owner of Selle An-Atomica.
There’s not a lot I can add which has not already been said better by those who knew him more closely.
The California Triple Crown blog has created an entry for folks to share stories and reminisces -
There are also some very fine recollections from members of the San Francisco Randonneurs in a couple of different threads here - http://groups.google.com/group/sfrandon
Events like this always give me pause, and are such a strong reminder to look around you each day, find those who mean much to you, and share those thoughts and love with them.
Each mile we get is a gift.
