Remembering Emil Walcek

It is with an abundance of gratitude and outpouring of appreciation that Bike Alpharetta and the Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization are able to close the Emil Walcek Memorial Fund as of April 2, 2019. In just 22 days, more than 200 friends and colleagues of our cycling friend Emil contributed $9,110 to a special GoFundMe Campaign.

He was an avid cyclist, a volunteer, a member of Bike Alpharetta – RAMBO – Bike Roswell, graphic artist, business owner and proud grandfather. After battling for four months, Emil succumbed from injuries sustained in a car-bicycle crash (he was on the bicycle).

More than 200 people attended his Memorial Service on March 16, and 55-plus people turned out at the Big Creek Greenway for a memorial bike ride! Thank you everyone. We will miss our friend so much – #RideForEmil
