What We Ride: Bill Yates’ Trek Madone

Bill Yates Trek Project One The Pro's Closet

Name: William Osborne Yates IV

Position at TPC: Mechanic/Shipping

What you ride: Trek Madone Project One

Why you ride it: My mom and aunt have had a longtime tradition of giving of cow gifts to each other, so I bought this bike because it reminds of my mom in a funny way. I ride it for exercise and to gain commuting PTO days.

Fun Facts: Every year I ride at an MS Charity Event to give back and raise money for an unbeatable disease. My bike was made for an old lady who must have liked cows enough to have Trek make her a Project One edition bike. I just happen to be the same size of an old lady, HA! This bike is udderly fantastic.
