As per her wishes, no memorial service will be held.

  1. Each month we get a magazine in a manila envelope from Laurie “Wo” Smith. She and her mom, Connie McAyeal made recumbent bicycle riding just that much more fun by virtue of the articles they published. Winter passes slowly in the Midwest and it helps to be able to do a virtual ride with another Easy Racers Rider somewhere in warmer climes. Our heart go out to Connie’s family as they grieve her passage. We will miss her face in the annual Recumbent Retreat group photo.
