CATRIKE EXPEDITION AUCTION - DIRCK HARRIS 1951 - 2017

Last year, Dirck Harris, a customer and good friend of ours passed away.  He was an avid cyclist, a member and president of the W&OD Trail Patrol.  A frequent visitor at the shop, we always enjoyed his sense of humor and genuine kindness. Dirck will be sorely missed by all of us here at the shop. His passing was due to mesothelioma, the result of serving in boiler rooms in the Navy many years ago.

At the request of his family, we are holding a silent auction of Dirck's Catrike. Please submit your bid in writing at the shop, using the forms provided, or email to tim@bikesatvienna.com by midnight, Sunday, June 3rd.  The funds will be donated to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation in honor of Dirck.
