First of Month “Herman Shum Dedication” Ride – January 3rd


As you all know we have lost a close friend and teammate Herman Shum last Saturday. We are planning a ride in his memory this Saturday January 3rd. The first Saturday of each month has been a team/club ride for over 20 years for the IC3 and we welcome all to join starting at 9:00 (meet across from Meadowlark Dairy in Pleasanton on Neal Street) then we will be finishing up at Emerald Glen Park (4201 Central Parkway, Dublin CA) at 11:15 to with a time to gather. All are certainly welcome to join in Herman’s honor to pray and share thoughts and memories of Herman. Look for the IC3 pop up tent in the park.

Please pass this note to anyone and post the times of the ride and gathering, we would really enjoy having anyone ride with us and being part of the extended IC3 family.
