Jeff Bates

Jeff passed away early this morning, surrounded by people he loved. I will miss him immensely.

I only knew Jeff for about three years, but worked with him daily for most of that time. Jeff was funny, kind, intelligent, and passionate. He taught me a phenomenal amount about cycling, life, and what it means to be a good person.

This is Jeff at the 2010 Tour of Utah, working for Shimano neutral support. He’s on Bob Roll’s right, with the bitchin’ shades.

Going to head out for a ride now, pin it, and ride with Jeff on the pegs.
