Join us for the RAAM (Ride Across America) Fundraiser Thursday May 19!

Our friend, customer, and fellow Jamis rider Steven Perezluha, recently qualified for the Race Across America (RAAM) by riding 462 miles in 23 hours and 56 minutes at the Sebring 24 hour race. This was 2nd place in the RAAM division. He now holds the under-20-year-old world record for a 24-hour non-drafting bicycle race. The RAAM is a 3,000 mile coast-to-coast bicycle race from California to Maryland; the race starts June 15, 2011. He will most likely be the only cyclist under the age of 23 to compete in this event!

Steven is holding a RAAM fundraiser Thursday, May 19, to raise money for the race (which will cost up to $20,000) and also to raise money for the National Alzheimer's Association. He is holding a fundraising banquet on May 19 at the Renaissance Building (1110 W. Ivanhoe, Orlando 32804) and tickets are $30. For more info, and to support Steven, please visit

We have tickets for sale at our shop, and each person will also get a raffle ticket. Steven has great prizes, such as airline tickets and bicycle parts and accessories!
