Rider Down***** UPDATE: A PayPal account has now been set up for donations. I've consolidate the ways you can contibute to Zeke's medical expenses on this page. Thanks for the help. *****
Excuse the cross-pollination, I'm repeating this info from my own site to further spread the word on this bad situation.
I just saw some distressing news about a fellow single speeder and all around good guy who got struck by a car while riding. Much more info can be found here. Please consider donating to the fund that is set up for his medical bills. Short story: I met Zeke last spring when a few of us went out to the Midwest Mountain bike summit in Kansas City. That's him in the picture above getting his derby on. Like everyone else out there, he did not know us, never met us but totally took care of us. We shipped our bikes to his shop and when we arrived they were unpacked and assembled and waiting in Ken Miner's garage, tuned up and ready to go. He even replaced someone's brake cable because it was spent and fraying. All just because he was a cool guy. You've probably met plenty of people just like him in your travels, a fellow cyclist who hooks you up because you are one of the tribe. Consider spreading that karma back by helping Zeke. Thanks.
