I just read about the horrific accident here in Tucson.  I , too, am a cyclist and have always felt there was safety in numbers--apparently not.  I'm writing to offer any assistance I can to the remaining riders.  I have a spare bedroom I'd be happy to share.  I reside in Marana, just about Turcon.

I have heard about the  tragic accident involving your bicycle club in Tucson.  My thoughts are with all of you.
I heard Judy C was on the trip.  Is she the critically injured Judy?  If so can you let me know any details or an appropriate person to contact.  I am her room-mate on a Bicycle Adventure Club trip in Argentina iin April.  
Again.  I can't imagine the horror you all must feel over the senseless injuries and  loss of life .

Just wanted to send out my condolences to you all for the loss of Clare Rhoades.  This accident happened right down the street from my place of work and it weighed heavy on the hearts of many customers.  It is all people talked about.  I am so sorry to your club and her family.  Please know that you all are in my prayers.

As fellow bicyclists, we extend our condolences to your entire community.   We are extremely saddened that this could have happened at all, let alone just four miles from our home.  Our prayers are with all of you.

Dear SoB's
Please accept my condolences for the loss of Claire Rhoades and get well wishes for Judy C.  I don't live in Santa Fe and am not retired yet, so will be at work on Thursday. But my heart will be with you all.
