Delvin's Replacement Bike

Our Friend Delvin Ishman was hit by a car this past Friday while sweeping a group ride.  By the grace of God he only has soreness and some raspberries, but his bike, helmet and shoes are a total loss.

Why am I raising money to help replace his bike, helmet and shoes?  Because Delvin is one of the most motivational people in Alabama helping new cyclists to learn to ride and increase their level of endurance through encouragement and a sense of humor that many of us have come to love.

Delvin has not been cycling long himself, but he found himself in a cycling community that is focused on helping beginners, when we helped him, and now he is putting himself in the same place almost every day on the bike.  We NEED Delvin back on the bike to keep making our community stronger.  He is an extremely valuable part of growing this cycling community, and we want to show him how appreciated he is. 

He currently has a loaner bike for 3 months.  Would you please consider kicking in what you can to help meet this goal before that time is up?

Delvin is looking into his insurance covering the cost of replacing the bike, and could possibly recover damages from the driver.  Any money collected over the amount needed to replace his bike, shoes and helmet will be donated to UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center.  I will post an update when we hear back on any help insurance might provide.
