One of our Forum members, who shall remain nameless, sent me a box of goodies for our El Cerrito High School Club Racers. There were two small warm long sleeve transition jackets that went right to new riders on our very cold and wet Saturday ride, a set of tires to replace some bare skins for our Wednesday ride, and a saddle which replaced a vertiable rack on the same day. A seat post and some Hayes Disc brakes are going, temporarily, into our parts box. That same day I sent out a check to cover shipping and handling and a tax credit form. It is the very least I can do for such generousity.
It is really interesting what gear does to move things forward against a cold and daunting task and make it memorable. Thank you so much.
