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.Posted 4 years ago
Our thoughts are with his family
Shocked and devastated. I met Dave and Steve about 4 years ago for a ride in the lakes and immediately hit it off with them. That was the first ride of what became the STW Northern Chapter Rides and every one of them was a total pleasure.
Dave was an immensely talented rider, but more than that, a thoroughly decent man and a true gent. Cant believe it, we were in the pub on Wednesday night last week after a night ride and talking about him.
Thoughts are with his family and all of you guys who rode regularly with him. Steve, thanks for letting us know and book my place on the Reeth ride.
Gutted. Ride in Peace.Posted 4 years agoyoshimiSubscriber
I’ve got 2 lasting memories of Dave…..
On the first Northern Chapter ride, it soon became clear that I’d bitten off more than I could chew, I remember clearly both Dave and Steve dragging me round, chatting to me loads, keeping me motivated and not once making me feel like a burden.
On another ride, coming down the San Marino, I thought this is my local stomping ground, this (old) guy won’t be able to keep up with me……..next thing I knew he came past like I was standing still.
A lovely guy and a super talented rider.Posted 4 years ago
