Item Description

"Biology" Theme - Felt FR Disc Bicycle

  • One-of-a-kind
  • Hand Painted
  • Inspired by UHCCF Grant Recipient Kaelyn, age 15
  • 54 cm ridden by Abby Mickey
  • Raced by Rally UHC Cycling at the Amgen Tour of California, May 12-18, 2019.

This  bike is in the fleet of one-of-a-kind Felt FR Disc bicycles that will be raced by Rally UHC Cycling at the 2019 Amgen Tour of California and now auctioned to benefit the UHCCF. Six brave young UHCCF grant recipients were surveyed to provide inspiration for each bike’s novel identity. See the bikes racing live in California on NBC Sports Network or via the Tour Tracker, and don’t miss your chance to own one of these exceptional, hand-painted Felt FR Disc race bicycles!

The designs are a collaboration between Rally UHC Cycling’s creative team--Emily SaintOnge and Sam Wiebe--and are hand-painted by Brad Galvin at Dirt Designs Graphic using premium Axalta paints and clear coat.

Each bike is outfitted with high-end race componentry – the same equipment used by the Rally UHC Cycling pros.

This bike's inspiration came from UHCCF Grant Recipient Kaelyn, who has a passion for nature and biology and loves “studying animals and how they interact with their environment,” so the design team concocted this radiant, organic design. A gradient with two of her favorite colors – purple and blue--gives the frame its soft base, while “cells” printed with metallic ink speak to the beautiful architecture inside us all.

Kaelyn’s advice for the team headed to the Tour of California:

“Thank you for embarking on such a difficult journey! It means a lot to us that you are willing to do something like this. I admire your courage and determination to commit to it. My advice is to keep who you’re cycling for in mind. It’s easy to lose track of the end goal once you’re on the path for it. Thank you again!”
