Some cool videos of college guys and gals drinking beer and having wild sex, I mean studying and being politically correct and environmentally responsible, that you can watch while drinking beer, I mean having an ice cream social. Along with a whole assortment of other cool and useful things to use while you spend the next four years avoiding meaningful employment and drinking beer, I mean learning and preparing to save the world. All in all we think once the rest of the donations come in we are looking at a prize package worth over $600.00!! All this for riding you bike a millisecond faster than the next guy? Who would have thought?
One thing is I ask you to remember why we do this. Daniel was a beloved Uncle who was the same age as me. He loved riding his Motorcycle, driving his jeep and his Corvette. I can still picture him doing wheelies on his old Schwinn Stingray 5 speed, but most of all Danny liked to fight for the little guy. He was a small in stature but was a tough as a Pit bull. He loved to see the little guy get what he deserved and made a point out of sticking it to the man. We lost Him a few years ago due to complications from Diabetes. All we ask is that you enjoy life, finish school, and if possible give some little guy a helping hand where you can. Any personal Donations to the American Diabetes Association will be appreciated by everyone afflicted.
As an added bonus, this year Kranzel Bike, along with friends and family members, will be donating $1.00 for every rider who registers for this weekend’s race to the American Diabetes Association in the name of all the Mid Atlantic Finals Participants.
