Jan 2, 2007


Our good friends at Over The Edge Sports in Fruita, CO partnered with two families over the holidays to provide bikes to underprivileged youth for Christmas. Fruita is just outside of Grand Junction and 20 miles from the Utah border, making it a great hub for all outdoor activities, especially cycling.

A handful of anonymous donors who happen to love bikes extended their enthusiasm for the sport by helping to donate 21 Raleigh and Diamondback bicycles. They ranged from toddler-size bikes to those that any teenager would love to ride. The shops manager, Jerry Wolf, was glad to be donating bikes that were not, as he put it, "cheap department store bikes, they're definitely safer and higher quality bikes."

Media coverage included a front page feature in the Grand Junction Free Press . Channel 11 News, the NBC affiliate in Grand Junction, also did a feature story on the good deeds of this Fruita community.
We hope that 2007 is filled with a lot more bicycle cheer and good deeds! Enjoy.
