Electric Bill



It is with heavy heart that we hear of the passing of Bill Drake, A.K.A. "Electric Bill"
Bill was know as "Electric Bill", as his profession was an electrician. Bill was the ride leader for the weekly Pre-Donut Ride. He was a regular ride leader for the holiday rides and many other OKC bike rides.

Bill wanted to make sure that OKC cyclists were informed of the cycling opportunities each week. He sent out a ride event calendar each week and provided the list of bike rides on Facebook.

Just a couple of months ago Bill graduated from the "League Cycling Instructor" bike skills training class. This was a 23 hour class that prepared Bill for teaching others how to safely ride a bike in traffic, ride with groups, and ride on trails. He was excited to have the chance to pass on his bike skills knowledge. 


Details on his funeral are not known at this time. Watch here for updates as they are known.
