How do I love BICAS? Let me count the ways, starting by sharing this wonderful story posted today by Colin – a talented artist, bike expert extraordinaire, a pillar of this fantastic organization and an official NICE PERSON.
“Kyouhei Nakano rode from Fairbanks Alaska to Tucson 2 years ago. Upon his arrival in Tucson his touring bike and all his earthly belongings were stolen. Ignacio Rivera de Rosales found his bags in an alley. We used his ID to find him on Facebook. Sadly he had already flown back to Japan. We promised him that if he wanted to come back to Tucson to finish his bicycle tour to Patagonia Argentina and then on to South Africa we would have his panniers and give him a free new bike. A few days ago he let us know he was on his way back. Ignacio procured a rad old Trek 950 and I helped him get it all sorted today. He’s staying with us for a couple more days and then he’s off!!!! Such a cool story!”
Thank you Colin (and BICAS) for proving once again that there is far more good in the world than meets the eye. To learn more about BICAS and to be directed to their awesome Etsy shop, visit www.BICAS.org.
