About this Event

A few years ago, when Tom Frost was 79 years old, he engaged multi-award winning bicycle builder Rob English to create a lightweight road bike to help him climb Old Priest grade. Tom had shared his desire with fellow climbing legend Conrad Anker, whose family has owned the land since the 1800s and runs the Priest Station Cafe at the top of the spectacular grade.

Unfortunately, Tom passed before fulfilling this dream.

Join Conrad, Hans Florine, Rob English and many special guests!
