Kelly Blunden and Ross Chafe Commemorative Bike Frame

During his racing days, Ross Chafe was supported by Giuseppi Marinoni, who is legendary in Canadian cycling for his achievements on the bike as well as for the fine bicycle frames he crafted in his Montreal shop. Mr. Marinoni, the star character in the 2014 award winning documentary The Fire In The Frame, remained a close friend to Ross over the years; when the documentary premiered last year at the Vancouver Film Festival, Ross and his family attended the showing and visited with Mr. Marinoni.

This fall The Fire In The Frame is touring several BC communities, with a portion of movie ticket sales going towards the British Columbia Cycling Coalition's efforts to promote bike safety. In light of our tragic loss of Kelly and Ross, Mr. Marinoni has donated a bike frame to go towards additional fundraising. That the bike frame is commemoratively calligraphed with their names gives it special relevance to Whistler Cycling Club members and friends far and wide.

Nov 5 promises to be an evening of entertainment, socializing, and commemorating, as well as raising funds for a cause near and dear to all cyclists.
