CYCLING COMMUNITY UNITES TO HELP IN THE WAKE OF HURRICANE KATRINA
September 12, 2005
Boulder, CO - Pro cyclists around the world join Veloswap and 3 Cats Photo
to raise funds for the American Red Cross and Hurricane Katrina.
In light of the tremendous tragedy in New Orleans, Mississippi and other
Gulf States, cyclists from Ivan Basso to Tim Johnson signed and donated
team jerseys for an on-line auction on Veloswap.com. Additionally, USA
Cycling has donated an official USA National Champion jersey that is
currently traversing the USA garnering signatures from Davis Phinney,
George Hincapie, Freddie Rodriguez, Colby Pearce, Ian MacGregor and many
Paketa Bikes has also stepped up and donated a brand new frame!
Paketa's magnesium road racing frames are light, stiff, and fast! Aerospace
engineering enters into the double-butted, bi-ovalized, and aero-shaped
downtubes. Thousands of road kilometers determined Paketa’s exclusive
geometry, and years of experience have gone into perfecting the proprietary
manufacturing processes. Paketa bikes are now
completely built in the USA: extruded, welded, and painted in Boulder County!
Now it is your turn to help!! Please visit www.veloswap.com and bid on your
favorite item today!
Additional items will be added as they are received. Check back regularly
to see new auction items. The auction will run through September 23. To
supply an item for auction, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's show the world how much heart we have!
