On April 20, 2013, bicyclists of all ages and abilities are invited to participate in a memorial ride to remember and honor Stacey's life. The ride will begin at the Manchester Recreation Center at 8 am. A pre-ride pancake breakfast will be available from 6 to 8 am. Two routes are planned, a 15 mile intermediate, and a 60 mile advanced ride. Registration for the ride is $25.00 and all proceeds will benefit the Teen Council of the Manchester Recreation Center.
Stacey Floyd was a father of 4 children, a loving husband, and an avid cyclist. He was killed instantly when he was hit from behind while riding bicycles with his family on a rural road in Coffee County on April 11, 2012. The driver of the automobile, Ms. Sheryl Marsee was never charged with violation of the statutes that protect bicyclists on Tennessee roadways (TCA 55-8-175, TCA 55-8-136). The incident was never formally acknowledged by TN District Attorney Mickey Layne, 14th Judicial District, Manchester TN. Read local press story here.
As supporters of the Tennessee "Share the Road" license plate initiative and The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation we would like to encourage everyone to register and participate in this important event and help the Floyd family bring a sense of closure to their tragic loss.
