A reminder about this Saturdayâ€™s memorial plaque dedication ride for Matt Peterson and Kristy Gough. Mattâ€™s parents will be attending this event and were not able to make the original memorial ride. Itâ€™d mean a lot to them to have a strong showing from the community, so we highly encourage you to attend. Details are below.

City of Cupertino's Announcement:
Memorials to be Dedicated for Bicyclists
On Sunday, March 9, 2008, two bicyclists were tragically killed in the foothills of Cupertino. Weather permitting, on Saturday, October 18, permanent memorials will be dedicated to Kristy Gough and Matt Peterson. Please join us for this brief ceremony as we honor the memory of our friends and family who have passed.
The morning's events will begin at 8 AM with a gathering at Cupertino Civic Center. Guests will cycle up
McClellan Road to Stevens Canyon Road, near the site of the accident.
Those driving by car should go directly to the memorial site, as the road will be closed to automobile traffic once the bicyclists get under way. Shortly after 9 am there will be some brief comments and an unveiling of the plaques. In words provided by their families, there is one tablet for each rider:
