We’ve gotten to know Margy over the last couple of years. We helped her kit out her old mountain bike for city commuting, and serviced it a couple of times for her. We were pretty upset when we heard that she’d been diagnosed with lymphoma in the same week as getting knocked off her bike by a bus. She’s the only customer of ours that I’ve ever met who was using their bike for transport to their own chemotherapy appointments. We meet a lot of people who’ve accomplished amazing things on their bicycles, and Margy is definitely up there with the best of ‘em.
When she told us that she wanted to buy a lighter sportier bike for The Ride To Conquer Cancer in October, we gave her one instead – If you’d like to help Margy reach her $2500 fundraising goal, you can donate online here.
