Ride for 3 Reasons 2017


It has been our pleasure over the last year to work with Jan-Edward Gierlach as he prepares for his 3,300 mile journey across the United States from San Diego, California to St. Augustine Florida. Jan has partnered with Ride for 3 Reasons founder Bob Lee and will be departing in February of 2017. Working in tandem with Salsa Cycles Wheel Werks donated a Salsa Vaya Touring bike for Jan’s expedition. Along the way he will be making multiple stops attending speaking engagements to spread the word about his three causes. The three causes Jan will be riding for are:

Les Turner ALS Foundation

Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern University

National Hospice Foundation

In total Jan has raised over $600,000 for his selected causes. Along with Wheel Werks and Salsa Cycles Jan has been generously supported by several additional corporate sponsors.
