The family of Ford Isbey has invited the cycling community to join them in a Celebration of Life for Ford Isbey on September 17th. Ford passed away on March 12th after a long battle with cancer.  Due to the ongoing pandemic, the family had been unable to hold a service until now. Details on the Celebration of life are below.  
Ford was a long time member of the First City Cycling Team, led the Wednesday Open Ride and the Saturday Open Ride between 2004 and 2016. The 61-year husband and father of three was the Global Sales Manager for Feedback Sports. The Asheville NC native had called Fort Collins home for 21 years and was loved and respected by the entire cycling community.  

Ford was diagnosed with cancer on March 2nd of 2018 and underwent intensive chemotherapy. By Christmas of that year, the cancer was gone but it would return in the Fall of 2019. Unfortunately, subsequent treatments would prove ineffective.
