On July 30, 2015, Patrick died on his bike.
But more importantly, Patrick lived on his bike.
In honor of an incredible teacher, cyclist and social justice advocate, Patrick's family will be starting a foundation to teach underprivileged youth and adults to bicycle ride. The non-profit organization will be modeled after Bike New York's effective learn-to-ride classes, but will launch in Miami, where no such organization exists. The organization will empower cyclists to ride confidently and safely.
Your donation will keep Patrick's passion alive. Donations will go toward bicycles, helmets, tools, teaching space, and outreach to underprivileged future cyclists.
In 2016, Patrick's sister Suzette is also completing her own ride, the Patrick Rides On 8000, to honor Patrick's memory and bring support to the non-profit organization. Donations can be made directly to that ride, here: http://www.pro8000.com/. (The PRO8000 does not have an affiliation with Bike & Build.)
Note that 100% of donations made to this page will go toward Patrick's non-profit organization, not Bike & Build. Bike & Build's role was generously setting up the donation platform. Bike & Build will provide you with a tax receipt for your donation.
