Nelson Vails Visits Velo Cult

Last week Olympian and Cycling Hall of Fame inductee Nelson Vails came by the shop to tell his story and do a Q&A with our customers. Most notably Nelson is known as being the first black cyclist to win an olympic medal. Nelson was a NYC bike messenger turned olympic athlete and his story is pretty remarkable and inspiring. Nelson was in Portland to raise money for the B.I.K.E. charity which you can check out here.
