A memorial bicycle ride to honor Iris Stagner, a cyclist killed on Monday by a truck, will be held in Mineral Wells on Friday.
For those who may not already have seen this on Facebook or other sites, here are the details as provided by Bike Texas:
“The five-mile ride will start from the parking lot of the Palo Pinto General Hospital, 400 SW 25th Avenue, Mineral Wells, Texas, 76067. The hospital is about 1.5 miles west of downtown Mineral Wells, one block south of the intersection of US 180 and 25th Avenue. Please plan to be at the parking lot at 12:30 to join the ride.
“The ride will head west on US 180 past the site of the crash that took Iris from us, and then proceed to the nearby church. Cyclists are requested to form a procession behind the ride pacers, ride together in silence at a slow pace, and to line up on Indian Creek Road in front of the church for the arrival of the procession carrying Iris. The Palo Pinto County Sheriff’s Department will provide escort and traffic control for the ride.
“Burial services for Iris will take place in the Memory Gardens Cemetery. Additional details of the services for Iris are still being worked out.”
