This first ride is in honour of STAN FREYMAN, a local Chilliwack resident who passed away in January. Stan was an inspiration to all self-propelled travellers. After he retired, Stan became concerned about global climate change and made changes to his lifestyle. He sold his s.u.v. and bought a more fuel efficient car, rode his bike all over Chilliwack and took the bus for long trips. He dreamed of a Chilliwack critical mass ride. Stan was living proof that it is never too late to change. With this ride we honour his commitment to life long learning and his efforts to improve the world in simple and practical ways
