I ran across this today while filing away photos. It was taken in January or February, 2017. A couple of months later he was gone.

But the trail he left behind was broad, and filled with good.

  1. One tough and unique dude – mentally, physically, and I would guess spiritually as well. Poignant that he left this world on a dark desert highway, trying to save his dog. Classic badass Tilford. Cyclists that didn’t read his blog have no idea how much they missed.

  2. Yep. Anyone that doesn’t understand what HTFU means will understand if they read enough of Tilford’s stuff. From losing teeth in a Tijuana crit, to standing up for his friends (and the stranger in need)
    , to refusing to compromise his own values – so much good stuff.
