I will miss my internet cyclist friend, Waving at you, ride the winds wherever you are...

The man that shared cycling photos with me on Mastodon and Strava, we never met, but traded barbs and stores about the locations he showed me on the other side of this country.

I will miss an amazing cyclist and friend. My best to your family in this trying time, I will miss you...

I am very sorry for your loss. Please know that Patrick enriched the lives of many around the world on the Mastodon and Pleroma social networks with his unfailing kindness and reports of his cycling adventures. I enjoyed the pictures he would post during his rides. I will miss him.

My deepest condolences to Patrick's family and friends. Descanse en paz.

I've been a privileged acquaintance of Patrick's since the beginning of the summer of 2020. We met on a Mastodon instance, and from there connected on Twitter and Strava. He was a hero to me, covering endless miles of roads like I could only dream of doing when I was a kid. Amazing strength, he had, but he always came across to me as a gentle person, always upbeat, never complaining at the hardships thrown in his path.

He told

I only knew Pla from his posts on the Fediverse, but I will really miss him. I always enjoyed seeing his cycling and technology posts; every one of them brought a bit of joy to my timeline.

Cycle on, Pla.

Patrick was one of my first followers on the Fediverse. I realized quickly that he was the person behind one of the most active accounts in the international cycling community. He regularly shared photos and experiences from his rides. And even though he must have experienced lots of negative encounters with aggressive drivers, he always managed to focus on the positive aspects and was always full of a "peace, keep on riding!" spirit. I am sure he not only inspired me, but people all across the globe.

Patrick was a genuinely nice guy and we will all miss his style online. He only had nice things to share, all the time. A rare treat among people.
I am hopeful that the killer is brought to justice and that his love of cycling in south carolina is brought to others who may not have had a chance to know him.

This came as a shock, not just to me, but a great deal of people in the software community Patrick was a part of. He helped me troubleshoot stuff more than once, and I could never thank him enough.

I am sorry for your loss, people who knew him in the offline world, because I believe he was even more vibrant and colourful than his online presence. I will miss his cycling updates, as his passion for what he

I only knew Patrick from his posts on the Fediverse, but his positivity was infectious and I loved seeing his regular bike riding pics. My heart goes out to his family. God bless.

Au revoir mon bon ami de Strava et de Mastodon, ton vélo jaune, tes photos de la Caroline du Sud et ton grand sourire vont nous manquer.
Mes plus sincères condoléances à sa famille, en particulier à Steven qui a annoncé la nouvelle à ses amis cyclistes.
Love from France.
