Loss of a Fellow Rider
« on: September 19, 2016, 09:02:40 AM »
French Lick MTB would like to extend sympathy to the family of Mike Thurston from Washington, IN who tragically was killed on Sunday while riding.
He enjoyed riding the trail at French Lick and you could always tell when he was in the woods because you could hear him whistling as you were riding.
He was an inspiration to me as he fought to overcome many health challenges and had the "never give up attitude".

You will be missed by many!

RIP Mike

Sorry for your loss. When you say 'killed while riding' do you mean on the road..?

Yes.  He was struck by a 92yo driving an SUV...  :(
