Polly was a childhood friend and as we grew older I came to know her from afar even better, as we both shared a connection with Bill W and a love of cycling. Her passing leaves me sad and I know many others are grieving more deeply. I pray that she is at peace and that her life inspired many others to seize the day and to become a better version of one’s self, as she truly did and lived.

So Saddened by this News
I met Polly in 2015 I was new to cycling recovering from an AIDS diagnosis struggling with isolation
Polly’s invite to a group ride changed my struggles forever brought me from that deep isolation giving me a willingness to be around others
That invite changed me & my life forever and I’m beyond grateful for her kindness & friendship
Polly will be dearly missed by many
Love Comfort & Peace

I was thrilled to find another female cyclist on SSI who really liked to ride. We did not ride together as much as we hoped due to work schedules. I will miss you, as will all our Golden Isles Chain Gang riders.
