The SRAM pART Project commissioned dozens of artists to transform bike parts into art. On Sunday, November 20th, the pieces will be auctioned off with the proceeds being donated to World Bicycle Relief.
I grew up in Minnesota where I discovered bike racing while attending Art School. It wasn't long before I was riding my bike more than I was going to class. I moved out to Norcal in 2001 chasing the dream of riding bikes. I spent the next couple of years overtraining and underfeeding myself until I couldn't ride or race anymore. After a few forced years off the bike, I returned in 2007 with informed training methods. I am one of the founding members of the team.
