“Hello Bike Friday Team,
“I wanted to share this picture with you. Front row is me (Adam Arlan) and David Nestvold with our Bike Fridays.
“We are both bike coaches for the northwest chapter of JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). We help riders train and prepare for destination rides as we raise money for the cure of Type 1 Diabetes.
“The photo is from our trip to Burlington, Vermont from Seattle for a century ride. In this picture we’re in the southern part of Burlington overlooking Lake Champlain.
“I purchased my Bike Friday from you in January 2014. So far it has been to Hawaii, California, Arizona, Nevada, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
“Last November we traveled to Arizona with several JDRF riders as well. We rode El Tour de Tucson and raised money for JDRF on my Bike Friday.
“I’ll be taking it on another JDRF ride this fall to Death Valley. We also got another JDRF rider to buy a Bike Friday.
“Here is the link to my fundraising site for the JDRF ride this fall.
