Cycling Road Rally Organized To Remember Fresno's Ed Lund

Oct 17, 2017

When he died in a tragic bicycle crash in 2015, Ed Lund left a void in both the city's art and cycling communities. Ed was a gifted artist, worked with students at Fresno State and was a passionate cyclist. He died while competing in a road rally in Sonoma organized by cycling great Levi Leipheimer, the GranFondo. Now Ed's friends and family are organizing a rally of their own in Ed's memory. Called "The Hammer Road Rally" in honor of Ed's nickname, the event will take place in Friant October 21st, and will feature riders including Leipheimer. The event also will feature a festival, including live music and more. It will benefit scholarships for Fresno State art students. We spoke with Ed's sister Lisa Lund Brown and Mark Kranjcec with the Edward O. Lund Foundation to learn more about Ed and about the rally.
