Big Dawg's "Big Fix Walt"

Readers of this blog will recall that Wheels North rider Walter "Big Dawg" Dawes crashed about 8 hours short of his 24-hour bicycle riding goal.  A broken collarbone and two broken ribs have sidelined him for a while, although we're pleased to report that he is doing much better (spoke with him on Tuesday).
Now, Walter's friends in the Houston bicycle messenger community are organizing an event to help Big Dawg get back on his feet. No firm date yet, but look for something happening around the end of May.
Walter has promised us that he'll be riding and fundraising and on the starting line in Santa Rosa next year.
