Karma Ride for Geordie

Geordie suffered a workplace injury that has left him paralyzed below the chest. Geordie’s condition is extreme and he cannot access the treatment he needs here in N.L. Costs of treatment in the U.S. will be high, but it is his best shot at regaining full use of his legs and learning how to walk again. Ride for Geordie by donation ($10 minimum) at Bespoke Cycle. Call 552-0579 to book a bike.
