Kent Erickson Recognized For A Life-Time Of Achievement

There’s a nice feature piece in on cyclist, cycling advocate and premier titanium frame builder, Kent Eriksen in Sunday’s Steamboat Today.  From the Steamboat Today article,

“Eriksen’s efforts to grow cycling in Steamboat were recognized Thursday night during the first events of the three-day Steamboat Bike Summit that highlighted the plans others with similar big dreams have envisioned.

Eriksen spoke before a crowd of more than 100 for 45 minutes, telling of his early days in Steamboat and the creation of his first Yampa Valley bike company, Moots Cycles. Then, Routt County Riders President Robin Craigen surprised Eriksen with a lifetime achievement award, a sleek-looking sculpture of bike and rider on a large wooden block.”

“It just means I’m old,” Eriksen humbly said later. But to many, it was an honor perfectly suited to a man who helped usher mountain biking not only into Routt County, but into the United States.

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
