Sadly, Potomac Pedalers has lost one of its most dynamic and vocal members.

Kim Lamphier, who always had a smile and an opinion, passed away Friday in hospice after a year-long, hard fought battle with a virulent sarcoma cancer. She went out with love from her family and husband David Whitaker along with a Dobro of course at her side.
