Memorial ride in honor of cyclist Saturday
A memorial bike ride for Crystel Stanford, the 29-year-old cyclist who died following a crash during last weekend's Eye-Q Fresno Classic Century, has been organized for Saturday morning.
The 30-mile memorial ride will depart Clovis East High (2940 N. Leonard Ave., Clovis) at 8 a.m. from the east parking lot, according to a posting on Facebook.
The course will be mostly flat and ridden at a "no-drop pace so all can join," the post said.
Stanford, who grew up in Chowchilla but lives in San Carlos, was on a downhill part of Hills Valley Road near Highway 180 when she skidded and crashed during the 100-mile ride, according to the California Highway Patrol.
