This morning in a wet fog about 90 or 100 riders gathered at Kapanui School in Waikanae for the memorial ride for Frank van Kampen who was killed in Te Horo by a drunk driver on his ride home from work almost a year ago. Some speeches were had and we were briefed about safety, and we set out following the route of his last ride.
The pace was fairly leisurely, and the car and truck traffic slowed down for us too. We made our way under police escort to Te Horo.
Some words were said to remember Frank and we had a minute’s silence (except for the Harley’s on the highway) and a memorial garden was opened in his honour.
