Two years ago I broke my back riding mountain bikes in California. My family pulled together some funds in which to travel with (or spend on awesome stuff) as soon as I was out of the wheelchair and fully recovered. I sent all the dough to @ironmegron of @mothattack for three custom bicycles.

Fast forward exactly two years: today Rudi of @blackmagicpaint just hand delivered the three finished frames to me, expertly made by Megan and incredibly painted by Rudi. I've never been part of such a bonkers process and project before. I'm thanking both talented friends tonight as I stare at the frames, difficult to take my eyes off 'em. Build photos posted as they are assembled.

Long week? Me too, let's start the weekend off with some cardio. See y'all TONIGHT for some conversation pace climb time on road bikes. First to Pittock Mansion, then a loop on Fairmont, and we'll end with a sunset view at Council Crest. No jocks... just tall socks and good talks.

Yo, my photo show is still up at @westernbikeworks and 26 prints have sold thus far... which means that $260 will be donated to MS awareness. Great start. BUT, we can do better, please stop in and pick one up to help raise a full $720!

Each of my 72 separate 4x6 postcards is sold for only $10, with the proceeds given to our Portland @bike_ms chapter... then you can send those little beauties 'round the world! #AEVSMSviaLight #BikeMS #iRideWithMS
