We Remember Alfred Barr: RIP since 8 March 2017

Today is a tough day for many of us!  One year ago we lost a friend and fellow fatbiker adventurer, who died training as an RCAF SAR Technician, so that he could be ready to answer the call to respond to any dangerous mission to rescue his fellow Canadians in distress!  For many, losing Alfred was the loss of a loved one, family member and a person they respected and looked up to!

Today we remember with sadness, but also with thanks for having known such a kind, compassionate, brave man who shared his strong ethical character ‘on his sleeves’!

After last weekend, when we rode in tribute to Alfred during our “2018 ‘Alfred Barr’ Lake Winnipeg Fatbike Crossing & Campover” adventure, it somehow does not hurt quite as much to face this day …
