A portion of Robin Williams’ bike collection is being auctioned via Paddle8, an online auction house. The bikes were donated by Robin Williams’ children, and the proceeds of the auction will go to the Challenged Athletes Foundation and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. The collection spans a wide variety of bicycles with some exceptional standouts such as the Sycip Java Town and the Colnago C40 Gold Anniversary Limited Edition. There are approximately 87 bicycles being auctioned off for these two very good causes, and it is worth having a look through the collection. The Delta 7 Ascend pictured above reminded me of one of my personal Williams sightings. I was up in Marin with my family, and happened upon Bicycle Odyssey in Sausalito. I convinced them to stop so I could have a look at the shop, and to my surprise when I walked in, Robin Williams was inside taking delivery of the Delta 7. I can’t say for sure if he bought it there, or if it was just in for service, but I can confirm the big smile on his face when the bike was wheeled out for him. The joy of receiving a new bicycle is universal, and Robin Williams’ joy was no exception.
