The last time everyone I knew was unmoored by a death it was Adam “MCA” Yauch.
Now Robin Williams.
As a cyclist, his jokes about our proclivities, about the Tour de France, about the bike itself gave us permission to see ourselves through other eyes, to laugh at ourselves. What a gift.
And it seems wherever Robin traveled he stopped at a shop, including the one in Seattle where Mark V works.
When visiting Seattle, Robin Williams would often stop by the shop where @OriginalMarkV works and look at bikes. RIP.— byron@bikehugger (@bikehugger) August 11, 2014
