Rolling for Rob

The local bike community is mobilizing to host a memorial ride in honor of the recently and dearly departed co-owner of Bread bakery, Rob Kabeary.

As most already know, Kabeary, 61, died unexpectedly Dec. 1 from complications of what is believed to have been a stroke. During his time, he was a huge cycling advocate and generous donor of baked goods to Devo riders as well as the community at large.

“Rob was one of Devo’s most fervent and dedicated supporters,” Devo Director Levi Kurlander wrote in an email. “Rob’s donations to Devo through Bread have become a staple of our experience – from coaches to kids, we’ve never gone hungry. Rob was always quick to downplay the significance of his giving. ‘It’s just food,’ he’d say.”

To give something back to the man that gave so much, Devo will he holding a “slow roll” memorial bike ride at 1:15 p.m. Sat., Dec. 15. The ride will start at Bread and make its way through town and to the memorial service for Kabeary at Miller Middle School at 2:30 p.m. The ride will be suitable for all ability levels and types of bikes.

In addition to being an avid cyclist, Kabeary was also an huge fan of KDUR radio. As a result, family and friends are requesting that donations be made in his name to www.kdur.org or sent to KDUR, 1000 Rim Drive, Durango, 81301 with the note “Rob Kabeary” in the memo line.

People can also make donations to Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos, an orphanage in Honduras where Kabeary worked. Donate at www.nph.org/ projects or send a check to NPH United States, 134 North LaSalle St., Suite 500, Chicago, IL 60602-1036 and note “Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos Honduras” in the memo line.
