Ryan Holt: Tough Guy

One of the cool things about the Internet is that it has the ability to bring like-minded people together. Occasionally, "families" (after a sort) are formed and people look after one another. Because I was learning about cycling, one of the places I gravitated was RoadBike Review (commonly and lovingly referred to as RBR).

I have been witness to some amazing things, including one guy who got hit by a car and people started raising funds for his recovery. This is a community that takes care of its own. Occasionally, they take care of people who are not their own. Such was the case with Ryan Holt.

These guys banded together and built a couple of bikes, including this one, then auctioned them off on e-bay to raise money for the family to help Ryan with his battle. On August 24, Ryan's grandparents came from Heaven to show him the way home. These guys have my respect and admiration for what they did for one little boy. Godspeed, Ryan.
