Steve Albers, a Tacoma insurance company president, died after crashing last Thursday during the club's annual Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day (RAMROD) event. The challenging 152-mile ride features 10,000 feet of climbing and descending, according to Seattle Bike Blog.
Redmond Cycling Club posted the following note on its website:
It is with sadness that we share the news that Steve Albers, a Northwest resident and RAMROD 2012 participant, passed away from injuries he sustained in a single bike accident during the descent from Inspiration Point to Box Canyon during the event.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Albers family and friends.
