But on that electric-assist bicycle, I was fantasizing about keeping up with George Bennett, recent winner of the Tour of California road cycling race.

Thank you, Davis! Because of you Cool Davis had a very successful day on Big Day of Giving! We raised  $17,732 which got us close to our goal of $20,000. Cool Davis also added a number of new donors to our circle of supporters. We are so glad they are investing in a Cooler Davis!
