As some of you know, Karen and I have a nephew, Emlen, living with cystic fibrosis. Tough stuff. To show our support for Emlen and his family, Karen and I started a charity to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis through our love of cycling, running, and exercising outdoors.
While we plan on participating in the CF Ride in Half Moon Bay on June 21st (info below), our first official LifeLineRacing project is the 2014 Cycling Clothing. Check out the designs created by Jay Ferracane of Angry Bovine. We are very excited to have Jay backing this project. The main element, "65 Roses" is a helpful way to say "Cystic Fibrosis". Get out, ride, and get people saying cystic fibrosis, whether it is a patron at a coffee shop asking about your jersey or a race announcer cheering you on in your solo breakaway!
If you are interested in getting updates on the ordering process, check back here or follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
All the Best!
Doug & Karen

The Hand and Rose logo is placed on the upper back shoulder. The hand is derived from Emlen's handprint. When you are at your limit, think of Emlen's boundless energy pushing you along to the top of the hill, back up to the group, or across the finish line! Logo designed by Elizabeth Hall (Emlen's mother) and Erik Beadle
The LifeLineRacing Longevity logo is an interpretation of a Chinese symbol for longevity. Logo designed by Elizabeth Hall (Emlen's mother) and Erik Beadle
Purple is the color of cystic fibrosis.
