Thanks BeejPosted 1 year ago
One of the good guys. He will be missedPosted 1 year ago
yep just felt empty last night when i heard this. Life sucks at times.
I can deal with people dying , i can’t deal with people i know being killed by other people in circumstances outwith their control that they did not sign up for.
RIP BEEJ , The sunrise lap on the 20th is all yours.Posted 1 year ago
It’s really the worst news, I can’t imagine how it is for his wife and young kids.
I’ve raced against him, ridden with him and generally had a laugh with him off the bike and he was always funny, friendly and often forthright. A real loss.Posted 1 year ago
A total shock yesterday when I heard.
RIP BJPosted 1 year ago

I only met him a few times and he was a genuine top bloke. RIP BJPosted 1 year ago
Just heard the news via another friend, totally lost for words and have the wobbly lip now.
Spent a cracking couple of weekends camping at 24/12 with him and family, top guy and a real loss 🙁Posted 1 year ago
mlehworld is mourning one of our own. Incredibly sad news for all that knew and loved such a lovely fella. Rest In Peace, mate.Posted 1 year ago
Again lost for words. A man who always had a smile on his face, time for anyone and a loving family. It’s going to a little dimmer at 24/12 this year.Posted 1 year ago

Awful news. Thoughts to his family.Posted 1 year ago
It’s a real gut wrencher this. 3 of us rode the trails he made as an MTB pioneer in this area last night. He was the reason I got into mountain biking proper and I spent a lot of time watching his rear wheel disappear into the distance on rides. He was due back here next month after years being forced to ride roads down in the flatlands. It’s so unfair. I too will give him a lap at the puffer and I’ll have a dram for him at the end. R.I.P. BJ. It was an honour and a pleasure to know you.Posted 1 year ago
Dreadful news. Thinking of his family and his friends – both here and elsewhere.Posted 1 year ago

RIP soulrider, and sincerest of condolences to his family and friends.Posted 1 year ago
Not a man I know personally, but still awful news to hear. Condolences to (apparently numerous) friends and familyPosted 1 year ago
I didn’t know soulrider except through what he posted on here but the loss of someone in ‘my’ community is still an emotional blow – goodness knows what it’s like for those that knew him.
Condolences to his friends and family.Posted 1 year ago
Never met him but seen him on here. I just read some his posting history and seemed like a top all round decent bloke – helpful, insightful, witty, to the point. The post about engaging with inconsiderate drivers jammed me in my tracks.
Super sad and condolences to his family and friends.Posted 1 year ago
Very sad . Condolences to family and friends.Posted 1 year ago
Keep trying to write something succinct but fitting, and keep failing.
Instead I will repost what my eldest lad wrote elsewhere:
‘BJ was such a great guy and always really supportive of myself and Zach as we were growing up. He’ll be missed.’Posted 1 year ago
Dreadful news. As you say Devs, with him due to move back to Moray in a few weeks time, an area he loved so much, makes the news even worse somehow.
BJ showed me round some of the Moray trails he’d been involved in building many years ago. Always recall him being very encouraging to new and young riders. Such a tragic loss – can’t imagine how hard things will be for his wife and young kids having a couple a similar age. RIP pal.Posted 1 year ago
Didnt really know Soulrider, but evidently a top bloke from the posts above. Deepest condolences to family and friends. Horrible.Posted 1 year ago
Terrible news. RIP and thoughts with his family and friends.Posted 1 year ago

Sad news. RIPPosted 1 year ago
Have resurrected my account on here to add my words. BJ is a huge loss to us so I can’t imagine how it is for his family.Posted 1 year ago
I have been spurred (why does it take a tragedy) to get my bikes trail-worthy-one booked in for payday on Tuesday and carpé that motherf****g diem.
Tomorrow may be too late.
Stay safe people x
