During his 40-years as a community dentist, Dad was known as a gentle individual, loved by patients and staff. In retirement, he loved to lead historic tours of Newport, and to stay fit through a healthy active lifestyle. Dad loved to bicycle. He died tragically while he was riding the roads he loved adjacent to the beaches he loved – a road now graced with a much safer dedicated bike lane.
We know there is promise of a safer cycling experience for future riders. We want to see more progress here in Newport and everywhere.
Our dad would love everything about Elliot’s Ride. He would love seeing the whole community out enjoying Newport from the seat of a bicycle.
We thank you for joining our call for more, better, and safer cycling in his honor and memory.
