Bicycle auction for Davis Phinney Foundation

Bicycle auction for Davis Phinney Foundation

This is for those with deep pockets and big hearts.

Not familiar with Parkinson’s disease? Parkinson’s is a chronic and progressive disease of the nervous system marked by tremor, muscular rigidity, and slow, imprecise movement, chiefly affecting middle-aged and elderly people. It worsens with time and currently we know neither the cause, nor the cure. It is associated with degeneration of the basal ganglia of the brain and a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine.

The Davis Phinney Foundation was founded in 2004 by Olympic medalist and cycling great, Davis Phinney, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2000 at the age of 40. Today, Davis is both a role model in the cycling community and an inspiration to the estimated 1.5 million Americans and estimated 10 million worldwide who are currently living with the disease.

Seven Cycles, Mavic and Rapha have come together for one hell of an auction to raise money for the Davis Phinney Foundation, and you have the chance to not only help the cause, but to ride away with a beautiful bike as well as some bonus accessories. As of this time, the auction will end in 9 days  (on 12/21 at 4pm.) The Ebay auction link can be found HERE.

Mavic is proud to offer this limited edition Seven Axiom SL with our Ksyrium 125th Anniversary wheel-tyre system and Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components. The Seven Cycles x Mavic 125th Anniversary Axiom SL is part of a collection of bikes designed and built to celebrate the 125th year that Mavic has been your trusted partner in cycling. This bike has a stunning gloss and matte black paint scheme with subtle touches of the famous yellow that Mavic is known for.

The winner of the auction will also receive two special edition Sportwool™ jerseys from Rapha. One autographed by Olympic medallist, American National Champion and Tour de France stage winner Davis Phinney and the other by 12-time national champion, world championship medalist and an Olympic gold medalist Connie Carpenter-Phinney.
