Meet Bob the Pride Bear
Bob, my pride bear, proudly road behind my bicycle the whole 585 miles of my first trip down the coast for ALC 4. I received 10 to 15 comments a day about him, people asking what his name was or calling him by name as they saw him the days previously. Each comment made me go a little further and the thought of him back there helped me along. During ALC 4 Bob even got on TV. LOGO TV was following the ride and got a shot of Bob waiting for me at a rest stop.
Since I was a Roadie in a sweep van for ALC 5, I made sure Bob had a seat. He got a chance with me to see ALC from another view and helped console cyclists who couldn’t keep riding for one reason or another.
