I didn’t know Carla Swart, though she went to college an hour from my home and many of my friends rode, races or coached her. I’ve heard rumors about Carla. A girl that was ripping legs off at Nationals, a girl from North Carolina winning big time cyclocross races, a down to earth girl that was fast and genuine.
For full details on Carla’s accident and reasons for death do a quick google search.
Take a Moment
While on your ride, at the gym or while taking a walk please take a moment and say a prayer for Carla’s passing and her family. I wish all of my readers safe travels during their rides over the weekend. Please make sure to look all around you and take your safety over convenience everyday.
