Our Soda Folk hero, Colorado Springs bike mechanic Brian Gravestock has taken his skill and added a whole new spin: donating finished bikes to those in need across his local community.
Brian has run Bike Clinic Too since ’09, to support the original Bike Clinic he founded in ’93 with friend Peter Sprunger-Froese. Bikes are donated, repaired by Brian and his team, then given to local homeless, offering them a freedom they would struggle to achieve alone.
A bike isn’t just a method of getting from one place to another. It is that ‘wind in the hair’ freedom to move swiftly, to escape urban life, to just hit the saddle and ride. Such freedoms form the roots of a healthy mind, which is why we chose Brian to grace our cans and bottles of craft Root Beer.
Here’s to you Brian!
