Bottom line - he is now in need and we are reaching out to Slowtwitchers to pull together and help
We have contacted the gentleman - and he has provided us the details of a local bike shop (for him) that has a bike that will work based around his special needs.
We are planning on hitting up the manufacturer of the bike along with the bike store - to get a huge price reduction - and then kick in some from a collective gathering of good souls here at Slowtwitch
We are also looking to purchase a giftcard for him from Walmart - which he could use to replace the clothing and camping items lost.
Can you spare a few dollars?
If so - please contribute - every little bit helps
This guy may not be a competitive cyclist or a triathlete even, however his bike is the ONLY way he can get around due to his disability.
