Austin with Gary Fisher, National Bike Summit 2010

Hello Cape Fear SORBA, this is your Vice-President Austin Fenwick. I am writing to each of you today to ask for your support. I am currently attempting to fund-raise so that I can attend the National Bike Summit in Washington DC March 8-10.  I wish to return to DC following my trip there last year to continue to show our representatives that cycling is an important part of our region and our nation. In addition this is an opportunity to learn from cycling advocates around the country. I wish to learn new and exciting strategies to help support our local cycling agenda. I want to help create more bike parks, bike lanes, and bike friendly people in our community. I can only do that with your help.

Please CF SORBA: send me to DC. Give me the opportunity to learn, so that I may teach. Currently, I have raised $200 from donations made by both the Cape Fear Cyclists and Two Wheeler Dealer.  I need approximately $300 total for registration. I will cover the rest myself. That leaves $100 yet to be raised. I do not want to request funds from Cape Fear SORBA because the club is in desperate need of the cash for current trail building projects.  So I am humbly asking each of you for help. Any donation, large or small, would be a great help. I am going to represent the Cape Fear Region in Washington DC.  I want to bring everything I learn back to the Cape Fear, and build a better cycling world.

If you do wish to help fund my trip to DC, you may drop off donations at:
Old Books on Front St
249 N. Front St
Wilmington, NC 28401

or mail them to:
Austin Fenwick
206 Frederica Court

Thank you for your time and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
