The Pink Team answered a call to build a bike for a worthy young man who is riding for tranportation and also for his first RAGBRAI. As usual, many offers were made with parts, money and help. What a great team project. Here is the summary of how it ended up:
Kim H., who put out the initial plea, reported that there were many offers of bikes, parts, money and support. Once again the ladies repsonded with a great showing of community support.
Mike was able to find a Cannondale frame. Angie B. gave up some sweet Shimano 105 components and carbon seat post with saddle. Ernie Fisher did the build. The bike was presented to Zach this past Thursday. Mike reports that Zach was super excited.
Zach is riding RAGBRAI with Dream Team. So if you see him with his cool yellow bike and a helmet with a raccoon tail, be sure to holler out: "Sweet ride, Zach!"
VeloRosa ladies: JOB WELL DONE!
