Tom Ritchey’s 40-Year Ride

A good friend sent this to me and I’m sure everyone has seen it, but I’m posting it anyways. Tom Ritchey is a cycling hero to me and his ability to give me shed envy matches no other man (I don’t even have a shed). Reading the comments for the video I was struck by one in particular; “Great film about the Ritchey legacy. This film nailed it and brought back so many good memories of my early days with Ritchey. The only thing missing is the smell of new tires hanging in the Ritchey warehouse. Tom, thanks for taking a chance on a young kid so long ago. You changed my life in so many great ways, I will be forever grateful. Your products have withstood the test of time and are still the best.” Turns out the comment came from Don Myrah (1989 MTB World Champion). Sweet!
