The Bicycling Firefighter

Steve Buser was one of the best humans to ever ride on this little blue marble.

Steve passed away at the Ames , Iowa Fire Department Station 2 on March 17, 2017.

Steve was an avid bicyclist who sometimes wore a fire helmet and a kilt while riding.

It is our goal to erect a bronze, fat tire bicycle statue in Steve's honor somewhere on the Ames, Iowa bike trail system.
