Replace Kieran's Stolen Bike

Hi, thanks for reading this. My boyfriend, Kieran, a international student from Trinidad and Tobago, moved to Florida in 2016 to study civil engineering at the University of South Florida. Moving here, he needed a means of transportation, so he bought himself a Giant Escape which he estimated would last him 10-15 years. He had his bike for 3 years until it was stolen during his last semester at college. He secured it at his apartment as always but this time was different... it wasn't there in the morning when he went to ride it. He was devastated. He loved his bike so much. He rode his bike everyday and everywhere he could.  

Kieran loved his bike more than anything. He was in the high point of pimping his bike; he added a bell, a saddle bag, just bought a camel back and he was planning on adding a rack for the longer rides. It was not only his means of transportation but it was a reminder of his goal to increase biking in Tampa. In summer 2019, he did a study abroad in the Netherlands where he rode bikes around for a few weeks and learned about biking infrastructure. He is so passionate about biking and it killed me to see him lose something so dear to his heart. 

After university, we planned on doing a long bike ride. At this point, he might be riding on my handle bars unless small donations can be raised to get him a new bike. Please help!
