Remembering Bill Anderson

Bill joined CSBG in early 2004. He immediately became one of the most consistent and supportive riders on our weekly rides and it was obvious that he was one of our strongest riders. He was always ready to help with a flat tire or other difficulty. In 2007 he was designated to be our leader, because he was so capable and well liked by everyone. He was always an example, both in his riding skills and his concern for other riders. We will miss him a lot.

The Claremont City Council honored Bill with a moment of silence at their meeting on May 12.

    This is Bill’s son and I wanted to thank all of you for your kind words and your appreciation for our dad. He talked about the group all the time and how much he liked everyone that was part of it. It made his day when he was able to ride with you and spend time with you. Thanks and keep peddling.

    I rode with the group for the first time on 4/25 and Bill was the first member I met as he rode up to the Joselyn Center. He embraced a novice to the cycling world by giving me pointers, encouraging me, and assuring safety. All the members were friendly, open, and patient, and I look forward to riding with the group again. Even though my contact with Bill was brief, the memories left behind are of a warm and caring person.

  3. I have been a member of the CSBG for quite awhile but I do not ride with the group too often. Unfortunately I still have to work full time;But whenever I did ride on Saturday mornings, Bill would always ask about my husband Helmuth. Helmuth has not been able to do any long bike rides in several years because he has Parkinsons so Bill has not seen him for a while but everytime I saw Bill he would ask how Helmuth is doing. Such a nice man; such a loss.

  4. I could not have said it any better. Reading this brings back memories of my old room mate! He was always discussing this. I will send this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Appreciate your sharing!
