We all know what a wonderful, amazing, phenomenal friend/person Bibiana is, so I'll just cut to the chase.
I went out to a bike shop with her in Oct, and we test rode a few bicycles until we both found our dream bike. Bibi has always wanted her own bike for recreational and possibly triathlon use, but the cost of a good bike is a little steep for her. I thought it would be a fantastic to surprise her with her dream bike for her 23rd birthday in April 2013!
Any donation you can give is appreciated and will be noted! If you donate to this cause, I will make sure that she knows you helped her get this bike! I won't include the amount you donated unless you specifically tell me to include it. If you would like to include a note for her, please include that with your donation. I will take your note word-for-word and add it to a book I will give her outlining everyone who donated to her bike.
I'm also trying to get her the necessary accessories for the bike with this included price. These accessories include: a helment, a triathlon handle attachment, an emergency tool kit, water bottle rack, and a bike computer (to record her cadence and speed).
I hope this goes without saying, but this is a SURPRISE, please refrain from mentioning this to her...ever! Until after we give her the gift on her birthday!
