We spent some time visiting with a new sponsor of our ride and the man who used to build bikes for third world victims of land mine explosions. Rod Miner of Lightfoot Cycles, one of this nation’s greatest bike builders, thanks to the Internet has been able to keep the purity of his purpose alive. From a tiny Montana town of 1500 people Rod has been able to flourish in satisfying his goal of supplying people all over America and the world with transportation that is reliable, highly efficient and highly capable.

Ladies and gentleman, I present long time NBG supporters, the amazing husband and wife team of Chris Stoddard and Justyna Frank.
