Wong Keat Soon: 1956 – 2018

My Flipside friends and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Keat Wong.

I first met Keat in early 2013.  I don’t remember the circumstances.  Like most cycling friendships, I suspect ours began with an introduction by a mutual cycling acquaintance.

Keat and I became members of Team Flipside.  I remember lots of pre-dawn starts.

Keat brought much joy and laughter wherever he went.

And a never-say-die attitude to cycling.  Keat’s exploits on a bicycle are legendary.  Land’s End to John O’GroatsThe Maratona dies DolomitesThe 
Lake Taupo Cycle ChallengeThe VätternrundanThe Silk RouteThe Cape Town Cycle Tour.  The list goes on.

Whatever the challenge, you could count on Keat to make it to the finish.

Keat you will be sorely missed by all who knew you, and who had the pleasure of your company on various bike rides.

Wishing you eternal peace.
