Rider Down

In Memory of Tom Begala

Wanted to share the news that one of the regulars on our White Mountain Saturday morning group rides passed away on November 14, 2023. Tom provided countless of volunteer hours out in the Buena Vista helping to maintain that trail system.

The family will be holding a Memorial Service for Tom Begala on 2 December from 1pm to 3pm in Chandler, AZ (Mountain Standard Time). Attendees may participate virtually through Zoom. If you would like to say a few words of thought or memory for Tom, please let the family know at

Tom had an infectious great attitude towards anything he did, from trailwork, to riding with friends, to mentoring young riders. I always enjoyed talking to him on rides, in the shop or out digging rocks. I will always remember his smile and his enjoyment of being able to spend the majority of his summer weekends up here with us. I will miss Tom and feel grateful to have been able to spend time with such a special person.
