About This Item
This coin has been released as part of the Bike Awareness Project. It is a project initiated by USA geocacher Rockin Roddy in response to the death of his dear friend and caching companion Tod Phillips who was cut off by a left turning vehicle too much in a hurry to notice oncoming traffic. Tod was the 3rd member of Team Rod & Tod w/KAboom. Tod died on August 12 2008.
This coin is also to remember geocacher Jerry Pates (Doughboy), who tragically lost his life in a motor accident on March 30th of this year and the six motorcyclists that died in the Netherlands in the first week of April 2009. They are sadly missed by their friends and loved ones
