Cadel’s Shoes Auction

by CyclingTips


You may have been following this auction that we’re holding for Cadel’s World Champion shoes.

A few people have told me that they’d love to be able to donate to the the Cerebral Palsy Education Center (CPEC), but obviously don’t have a few lazy grand laying around to buy the shoes.

I’ve created an avenue where you can donate via paypal. No pressure. Feel free to donate whatever you like. The money collected will go on top of the money raised from the shoes auction and directly to CPEC.

My initial idea was to use the donations to bid for the shoes and return them to Cadel (this auction is obviously NOT about winning the shoes, it’s about raising money for CPEC). However, after thinking it through, if I used the donations to bid on the shoes then I’d effectively be negating the highest bidder and raising only half the potential amount. Then I’d feel like a dumb-ass…

The auction will end on Monday, May 31 at 8:30 AEST. The day after Cadel wins the Giro.
