It is with immense sadness that I write this and I still don't know exactly what to say but Deejay (Dave) passed away suddenly yesterday.
I know many people on here knew him and had ridden with him many times.
He had recently been diagnosed with cancer and was undergoing treatment but this is hugely shocking to us all.
He was an original member of the STW Northern Chapter, a stunning rider with an encyclopaedic knowledge of trails in the Dales, Lakes, N Yorks Moors and the Peaks.
Most of all he was a dear dear friend and one of the nicest people I've ever known.
He is already missed and that never change.
I intend to organise a ride out from the Dales Centre in Reeth in May/June as a tribute and all who knew him are welcome.
Our thoughts are with his family
