Much has been written about our late fearless leader, Rob Harris (aka Editor ‘Arris). Mark painfully reflected on the events of that fateful day and its aftermath on the first anniversary of his passing. He’ll once again be returning to the scene of the collision this Saturday May 9th.
Every year in May on the Saturday prior (Rob was killed on Friday the 14th), Mark visits the site. He fixes up the crosses and clears the area of debris; taking some time to pause and reflect on his friend’s life and death. It’s a solemn affair but Mark always extends an open invitation to anyone who may also wish to make the pilgrimage with him. This year is no different, but social distancing will be observed given the current pandemic.
Mark plans on riding his Harley-Davidson Low Rider from Coburg to Rhino’s Roadhouse in Bewdley, ON on Saturday morning. Departing from there at 10:00am either alone or with whomever cares to join, it’s about a two hour ride to the crash site south-west of Bancroft. The last few kilometres aren’t paved, but if Mark can make it through on his Low Rider pretty much anyone can.
The forecast isn’t looking great, but he’ll be riding rain or shine.
