Cycling Community Unites To Help In The Wake Of Hurricane Katrina

hello everyone... i think that this is technically spam but I wanted to get the word out.



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 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 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 [email protected].

Let's show the world how much heart we have!
