“Honor Guard Bicycle Ride” to the memorial service for Greg and Alex Bruehler

October 5, 2009

Please make it a point to attend this memorial service for Gregory & Alexandra Bruehler.  Their family requested cyclists to be a part of this.  We should do whatever we can to honor their wishes.  Info on the Memorial Service is posted here:  https://saridelikeagirl.wordpress.com/2009/10/05/memorial-for-fallen-cyclists-gregory-alexandra-bruehler-tuesday-october-6th-at-7pm/

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Kylie Bruehler Benefit Fund at any Frost Bank or by mail to: Kylie Bruehler Benefit Fund, c/o 24165 IH-10 West, Ste. 217-270, San Antonio, Texas 78257-1160.

 

Bicyclists from the San Antonio area are invited to participate in a very short “honor guard bicycle ride” to the memorial service for Greg and Alex Bruehler.  It is way for San Antonio & surrounding area’s cyclists to show their respects to the family of two fellow cyclists that were killed last week in the San Antonio area.  

 

Cyclists will gather at the Boerne City Hall at 5:45 PM on Tuesday, October 6th.  At 6:15 PM the group will ride to St. John’s Lutheran Church and will stand as an honor guard across from the church while friends and family arrive for the service.

The line of cyclists will stand silently, holding their helmets, across the road from the church as Greg and Alex’s friends and family arrive for the service.  The vigil will break up about five minutes after the service begins.

    I’ll be there in my new RLAG jersey, seems like a good time to wear it.

    Yes, we really need to think about the importance of honoring these riders, their daughter & family in their time of need.

    And we quietly & respectfully need to make a statement that helps to bring about change. This was so sad… I don’t know that I’ll be able to ride again without thinking about Greg & Alex, and I never even met them. I see they were wonderful people.

    Prayers to their beautiful little girl…

      Unfortunately I cannot be at the memorial tonight. I will be making a donation to the Kylie Bruehler Benefit Fund and the family will be in my prayers.

    Several of you asked about whether to wear a jersey. I am going to wear a black tank, put my jersey over it. Black arm band.

      I think that is a good idea about wearing the black tank. I think wearing our jerseys, especially group/team jerseys will help to show our unity and our dedication to cycling and the rights of cyclists.
