Celebrating Robin’s Love of Bikes

In celebration of Robin Williams on this 5th year of his passing, Trips for Kids is collecting stories of Robin and bikes. Robin was a long-time Trips for Kids supporter and Honorary Board member. Robin also donated bikes, clothes and accessories to Trips for Kids, usually through the Trips for Kids Marin ReCyclery bike thrift shop in San Rafael, California.

Robin Williams Supported Trips for Kids

In this image, Robin attended an event in Marin County and is photographed with Pat Gallery, chair of the Trips for Kids national Board of Directors (left), and Marilyn Price, Founder of Trips for Kids (right).

Robin Donated and Signed His Bianchi ‘San Jose’ Bike

This is one of the bikes that he donated to Trips for Kids. He was nice enough to sign the bike (see signature in gray), and even wrote a funny, but inappropriate joke on it (of course, this is Robin Williams!).

> You can read the joke on the bike’s eBay auction page.
