Pro rider Amber Neben delivers bikes to at-risk kids • QBP adds sales reps

ANAHEIM, CA (BRAIN)—Former world champion Amber Neben delivered dozens of bikes to at-risk kids this week in Southern California. Neben, who races for the Specialized-lululemon team, has her own charity, The Dare To Be Project, which partnered with an Orange County non-profit to deliver more than 70 Specialized bikes to families in Costa Mesa and Anaheim on Monday.

“I remember my first bike and how cool it was,” Neben said. “I hope they remember this moment, down the line, as a reminder that somebody cared and valued them.”

“One mother of three was overjoyed just knowing that she had something to give her kids on Christmas,” Neben said.
