THE cyclers of Saipan along with the Triathlon Association of the CNMI and the Northern Mariana Islands Cycling Federation paid their respects to a fellow cyclist and longtime island resident Luis Samelo who passed away recently, by going on a tribute ride Sunday around the island.

The large group of riders followed a route from  American Memorial Park to the Last Command Post in Marpi.

TRAC's Ricky Castro said the ride started at 7 a.m. with  no more than 25 persons per group as required by the Covid-19 safety protocols.

A former Black Micro Corp. foreman, Luis Samelo, 59, was known for his contributions as volunteer in  clearing the trails for cycling events.

"We want to show our respect to him," said Ricky Castro. "It is also our way to show support for his family."

Castro thanked Pastor Ed Lloren  of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Pastor Eric Abragan of Life in the Son Christian Fellowship for their support.
