This year is the 12th Annual Bike It here in Ashland Oregon, August 14th. This event is especially exciting for me because I have invited the Haro Team that I toured with to perform a 25th anniversary Haro Show. Bob Haro will be at this year's event, the man who sponsored me way back when and gave me one of the greatest opportunities of my life that sent me around the world performing shows and doing what I love for many years. I would like to invite you all to attend this significant event. This is a dream come true for me, a way to show my appreciation to the people that have made such an impact on my life. I am really looking forward to bringing a bite of my history, the sports history and some of my most influential people in my life to Ashland for a great time.
Donations are welcome and appreciated. The estimate cost to put on this event is $5,000 with flights, hotels, rental equipment etc.

Not sure how you roll, but I'm in the same postition as Frans Swinkels who recently dropped off a box full of old T-shirts at Paul's Boutique. He had saved them for the longest time but finally decided to say goodbye to the box. But not before Paul & I could go through the shirts and go back a few years. Ever T-shirt has a story behind it which makes it so hard to throw them away. Enjoy the Swinkels box:
