@alrs @mastobikes @tk holy fuck are you kidding?? please no!! please be ok @pla !!!

@alrs oh man! 😢 RIP @pla
How many times, how many videos of his rides showing nasty moments... and finally.

@mastobikes @tk

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla no way.. I wish this wasn't real. He's such a nice person

@alrs @tk oh no

Thank you @pla for having been with us for so long and for the flavor you brought to this network.


@clacke @pla @alrs @tk

Jesus. What terrible, unexpected news. Truly going to miss @pla for his cycling posts, the photos and his positive upbeat nature. RIP

@andyc @clacke @pla @alrs @tk
This is bloody terrible news. As a fellow cyclist, PLA and I discussed road safety and cycling a few months back. That he should die in such a manner is unbelievable.

I too will miss his photos, cycling stories, and our online discussions.

Goodbye, friend.

@andyc @clacke @pla @alrs @tk Shocking to hear. He always did some nice little tech things for the community, too. And one of our few genuine #tinap fans.

@alrs @tk @pla Oh no.

My condolences to his family and friends. I don't know him that much, but I've generally had good interactions with him.
Awful awful news. I will miss him and the joy he brought to us all

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla
So sorry to hear this. We didn't interact much, but I always accompanied his posts and enjoyed his photos.

@alrs @mastobikes @tk
so revolting!
Let's fight against cars, for life! ✊
Good bye @pla

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla

Oh no, speaking of a horrible start of the year. I followed Patrick and was amazed how regularly he was riding serious distances.

All the best and strength to his family - and as for Patrick, ride on into eternity and yes: rest in peace.

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla

Oh man, I'm so sorry to hear that! I've enjoyed his cycling posts the entire time I've been on Mastodon.

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla Fucking hell that is awful news. Always loved his photos of his rides. RIP

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla Omg. I am really going to miss him. 😢 I always looked forward to the photos of his bike in various place. Such a lovely person. One of the first people to follow me back on Mastodon.

He will be missed dearly.

@herag @alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla same here, he was such a supportive kind person.

@randynose not that I know of, I can reach out on Strava if you want to try to get in touch with him.

Thanks Lars, I setup an account there and followed him, and left a message in the above pictured thread.

@alrs @randynose

Some really sad news. I greatly enjoyed his posts... they brought some measure of light into the darkness.

@alrs @mastobikes @tk Goodbye @pla, you brightened my timeline whenever you were on it and I know you must have brightened the lives of the people around you in person. God bless.
@Moon @alrs @pla @tk In really going to miss him. He really just enjoyed living life.

@alrs @pla

Oh no! This is awful news!

Condolences to his family 😢

He was a friend to the Fediverse and will be missed greatly 🚴

Maybe those of us who drive can try to be a bit more aware of cyclists around us, and give them a bit more safety space if we can?

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla This is why we need to fight for the rights of the cyclist! 💪 cars are only second to third on the road...

Rest in peace good friend..! ❤️ ❤️

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla I just started following him a few days ago here. Didn't even got to know him. RIP.


Sad to hear that.

PLA had a positive impact on us, and we will carry that with us. In this way, all that pass, live a little in the ripples that they left behind.

@mastobikes @tk @pla

I'm awfully sorry to hear that.

R.I.P. @pla

Thanks for sharing the bad news, @alrs

@mastobikes @tk

thanks for letting us know.
I didn't really know him, but frequently saw him active in my notifications and on the Fediverse in general.

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla omg omg 😪😪 thanks for letting us know. We had chats about cycling and he was so kind. This is terrible. RIP Patrick.

@alrs @mastobikes oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that. Didn't follow him, & only just joined this group, but as a fellow cyclist am sadly used to such stories.

This is terrible. He was so nice. And his pictures of all his rides were one of my daily treat.
Be strong
@mastobikes @tk @pla

No!!! I didn't know Patrick L. Archibald passed away on January 1st. This saddens me immensely. Such a wonderful human being, and an inspiration to people who love cycling. The Fediverse will be poorer without him. 😢
@alrs @tk @pla RIP fellow cyclist buddy! I still can't believe it. I wondered why he didn't reply on my picture of the bicycle GPS he recommended on my unicycle.
@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla This is horrible news :'(
I only chatted to him a couple times, but Patrick was just so friendly and easy to talk too. He was really quite unique compared to the average fedi user. I'm going to miss his cycling photos on my timeline.
@alrs @tk @pla I didn't know him, but I'm sad he's gone. A terrible thing to happen to anyone. 😥

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla

I'm so shocked and in disbelief. One of the best guys around, and an example of good behavior. "Do no harm", as he said. I just can't believe he's gone. This is so sad.

@alrs oh no... it's horrible that he was killed by a motorist :(


@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla That makes me really sad. I remember him posting about another cyclist who was killed in the area, and now this.

@alrs @mastobikes @tk @pla OMG, that's terrible, I cannot beliebe it. All my sympathy are with the family, my condolences. I will miss him, even though we never met in person. may he RIP.

@alrs @tk @pla wait, what?

thats truly a tragedy. i have nothing but positive words to say about pla...
