Thanks SB... Many people will have raced with Wes over the years, many more will have followed his exploits here on ADVrider... and everyone I'm sure shares in the sorrow of the loss of a fellow rider.
Wes was never one for flowers or schmaltz, so instead his family have set up a Justgiving Page to help raise funds for Riders For Health - a charity that was dear to his heart, that helps to provide bikes and training/maintenance equipment for medial professionals based in Africa, so they can visit remote villages and provide healthcare to the local communities...
I don't want anyone to feel obliged of course, but if anyone is looking to make some sense of it all and is able to help in any way, please donate just a small amount...
