launch tour 16 the man

Rocky getting ready to set sail

Rocky Heidt, co-owner of Southwest Bicycles in Las Vegas headed out once again from Bellingham, WA. (home of our new Kona shop) for his annual post Kona Launch Tour down to San Francisco.  Rocky and four of his best customers/friends left the Kona Shop parking lot on their trip south and planned to pick up a couple more riders along the way. They hit up beautiful bike paths and rocky coastlines, crossed magnificent bridges, rode island ferries and ate oysters and wild black berries, and drunk Cheap Red Wine on their way to SF. The crew rode a mix of Sutra’s, Rove’s and Big Rove’s for their tools of pleasure.
