Groups of local cyclists gathered recently along the Puerto Peñasco-Sonoyta highway to pay homage to Vogar Ozuna Monge, who was killed in a tragic accident on September 10th while cycling.
The Memorial Monument, which consists of a white bicycle and a plaque with Vogar’s name, was installed at KM 92+800 along the highway, precisely where his life was cut short.
Prior to placement of the monument, groups of cyclists rode from Exodo Bikes on Ave. Guillermo Prieto to the memorial spot located near the former municipal airport.
Vogar’s father, Francisco Rafael Ozuna “El Pancho Gordo” expressed appreciation for the beautiful memorial to his son, located in a spot he will frequently see as a reminder of Vogar. He added he was proud his son had been part of a group of cyclists.
Cyclist and renowned local artist Vogar Ozuna Monge (42) died on the evening of September 10th after being hit by a car while cycling. His loss has impacted the community tremendously, both due to his involvement with local cycling groups as well as his presence within the artistic community.
