March 30th, 2012 – Back at Interbike 2011, Lezyne met Bobby McMullen for the first time. After having the chance to learn more about this accomplished rider and amazing person, Lezyne and Bobby decided to partner up for the 2012 season and made him a Lezyne Ambassador. Lezyne’s Marketing Manager Patrick Ribera-Mckay had this to say about the new partnership, “Before Interbike, none of us at Lezyne knew much about Bobby, nor did I think it was possible that a blind guy could be a downhiller. However, after sharing a beer with Bobby, I’m amazed by his talent and passion for cycling, and I am really excited that we are working together.”
In January, Lezyne invited Bobby and his spotter, Peter Lucas, to come down to Lezyne HQ in San Luis Obispo for some riding and a chance to do some video and photo work. Bobby had just finished racing CCCX in Monterey where took 3rd in his division. Unfortunately, there was no time to show them the local trails since it was pouring rain, but Lezyne did have a chance to sit down with Bobby and make a video about his amazing life as blind cyclist. We really hope that you enjoy this video.
