Local bicycling icon Fred Meredith passed away in April 2019

This is dated but it's the first I've heard of it.  Many of you knew or knew of Fred Meredith, whose bicycle advocacy was broad and deep.  He was one of the very first members of this forum back in 1993 when it started as a Critical Mass email list, and was one of its most prolific contributors.  He was also an all-around great guy, I never hear anyone have a bad word for him.  He will be sorely missed.

Thanks for posting this, I didn't know either.  I remember Fred giving me advice when I took a bike commuter work shop from him, YEARS ago ( 1995 or so?). He said " wear black shorts so you can wipe the grease off from changing a tire" and "Don't war racing jerseys, it just pisses car drivers off; better to look like a just another working schmuck."

Advice I took to heart and benefitted from more than once...
