The Architect Driving the NBG Bus Build Out

  • Who is Ron Bishop?
How about a no limits powerhouse? When this guy talks people listen. Last summer, when he helped me with my ride, all the way from Oakland, he had people in far away Elko, NV and Salt Lake City queuing up to get in synch with my ride because of him. Now he's driving the build out of our 2010 SF to Boston support vehicle, the 40 foot bus that  the John E Vision PR Agency bought for our ride. And things are starting the happen because of him!!

Here's a little more about the man the city of Oakland respects so much they made him, Mr Bicycle Oakland in a special ceremony where he received the "plaque" shown in the photo above.....
