The Portland Wheelmen Touring Club are rallying support for Keith Ticknor, who suffers from a brain tumor, with a benefit ride and a Christmas tree sale on Saturday.
Ticknor has been member of the club for nearly three decades and one club member described him to me as “the quintessential excellent volunteer without whom many events could not succeed”.
Treatment for his brain tumor has put Ticknor out of work for months and his family (wife and three kids ages 7 to 12) is in a precarious financial situation. The Wheelmen hope the ride and tree sale can help bridge the gap until he’s back on his feet (and pedals).
You can read more about Ticknor and the ride on the Wheelmen’s website.
