Colorado Governor named a day for veteran bike-shop owner

Durango’s Mountain Bike Specialists celebrates its 50th birthday this month, and to recognise the achievement the co-owner has had a State day named for him. 

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper sent Zink an official State of Colorado Proclamation naming 1st March as "Ed Zink Day".

Zink’s historic bike shop – run with his wife, Patti – was founded in 1968 as The Outdoorsman before mountain biking was born.

The shop featured in this recent BikeBiz article on the mysterious reappearance of an MTB world championships banner.
