July 12, 2006-- Cyclists, friends and family have opened their hearts to help Celestino Bautizo Lazo buy a bicycle so he can ride to school, begin racing, and start a mountain biking tour business in his native Oaxaca.
Here Celestino is with his family. He is second from left. They are standing in front of their handmade rugs, which the family weave for a living.
Benepe's Bike Blog thanks all of you for you incredible assistance to Celestino. Remember, the next time you want to train during the cold (brr!) winter months, you can head over to Celestino's house located in Teotitaln del Valle.
Celestino will also use the bike to take mountain bikers up to Benito Juarez, one of the most beautiful natural areas in the world.
Here is yours truly (JB) in the area two years ago. Yes, it was cold, dipping down to 40 degrees fahrenheit at night.
To donate online please go to first VIsa PayPal to donate $10 link, and second plain PayPal link to donate $5. They are both the same exact for the dollar amount. Thanks!!!
