I have waited a long time for this moment, and I am absolutely thrilled to introduce to you the fully customized Vegas In 24 Trek Speed Concept 9.9, photographed here under the Santa Monica Pier by our event photographer Tomo Muscionico. I have been riding Trek bikes for 15 years and have had many podium spots with their Speed Concept model. Yet, this brand new bike – customized specifically for Vegas In 24 – is different! This racing machine visually embraces everything Vegas In 24 is about – to serve those who are underserved and are unable to get screened, diagnosed or treated for breast cancer. This bike screams Savings Lives and I feel honored to be able to ride it on April 23.

This bike became a reality only because of Trek, Helen’s Cycles and Oakland Coffee, with a $0 added cost to the Pink Lotus Foundation, and therefore making our fund raising efforts as strong and effective as I have been wanting them to be since the very beginning Vegas In 24 was conceptualized.

Thank you also to Trek for the amazing custom paint job that cannot be purchased retail anywhere in the world – and to the team at Helen’s Cycles for having been my key liaisons for every Trek-related purchase I have made over the last 15 years.

I have less than 6 weeks to go. My training has been strong, and I will be ready on April 23! Thank you again to Trek, Helen’s Cycles and Oakland Coffee for providing me with this dream breast cancer fighting machine!
