I have just spoke with Kermit regarding the incident and Pam's current condition.  As the group was making a safe and routine left turn from Sunset Blvd., she got tangled up with another experienced cyclist that was next to her within the group.  They both went down onto the pavement.  While the experienced rider has escaped serious injury, Pam is currently at UCLA Medical Center in critical condition with severe head trauma.

Let's ALL hold our virtual hands in unity . . . as we send our healing prayers together in hopes our Lord brings his healing hand down onto Pam as we pray with all of our might towards Pam's most challenging moments of her life.

Lord . . . . hear our prayers."

Pam was a HUGE supporter and organizer of the Los Angeles Wheelmen's Grand Tour.  Her California Triple Crown History Report can be found HERE.

She was a dynamic leader with the LA Wheelmen as she would head and participated in many of the club's events, including the original double century in the country, the Grand Tour.  She loved to be with her cycling "family" within the club, and throughout the cycling community.

Pam is survived by her loving and supporting husband, Bob Geddes.

As we hold our virtual hands together, we bow our heads in unity as we bless Pam - as she heads into the heavens where our Lord will await her arrival to praise her highly for her dedication, kindness, enthusiasm, and her shear attention to needs and support for us all here on Earth.   Her mission on Earth is now complete.

May peace be with you Pam, as you have been and continue to be loved by everyone that had the great pleasure of growing with you, learning with you, working with you, riding with you, and especially knowing you.  May the tears from our eyes cleanse you during your "final ride" into the heavens as we praise your name from our hearts and soul . . . with tailwinds - always.
