Prior to his last stages of illness, Greg was an avid bike commuter and used the American Tobacco Trail to travel to and from his job, for fitness and to keep moving during times of recovery as he battled cancer.
Shortly after the memorial service for Greg, an anonymous person posted two signs on the ATT as a tribute to Greg. One of those signs is still standing three months and one hurricane later.
The loving gesture started a spark that has been slowing smoldering. Now, with the preliminary approval of the City of Durham Parks and Rec and Sara Sousa we are a happy to announce we are going to install Greg Sousa Memorial Bike Repair stations along the ATT!
The bike stations will be individually designed by Durham metal sculptor Al Frega with a Durham theme using reclaimed materials. Each station will be fully functional and include bike rack, tire pump and basic tools and an acknowledgement to Greg and his love of the ATT. Please see artist concept drawing above.
We are hoping to raise enough money to install 3 bike stations. The goal is to extend help to as many trail riders as possible and honor Greg's memory of helping those in need.
Please share this fundraising effort as much as possible and consider making a donation if you are able.
