Thank you, everyone, for your concerns about the fires here in Colorado. We are feeling more safe now that the High Park Fire here in Fort Collins is 100% contained. The total number of home lost are at 259, which may increase as the firefighters do more assessment of the damage. We are still amazed that the fire burned over 87,000 acres and came within a few miles of our offices. We feel such an immense gratitude for the firefighters and crews who worked relentlessly on containing the fire over the past 4 weeks.
The Waldo Canyon Fire two hours south of us in Colorado Springs has just been announced as the most destructive fire in Colorado history with 346 homes lost. With friends and family in Colorado Springs, we have been keeping our thoughts positive as 32,000 people were evacuated. While the containment of this fire is at 55%, firefighters have done an astounding job slowing down the rate at which this fire was moving. Almost 19,000 acres have burned, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Our dealers in Colorado Springs report that they are safe. And we offer a huge thank you to our dealers in Granby, Arapahoe Alpine Bicycle Shop. Owner, Susan, came to the High Park Fire to serve as a fire fighter, while VJ kept the shop open as the solo owner in town.
Through our Dollars for Demos program during the month of June, we gave enough test rides to write a check for $250 to the American Red Cross Northern Colorado chapter. Thank you to all the people who enthusiastically took a ride, especially in the name of supporting the fire efforts.
Thank you, Steve, for asking for an update. I’ll try to keep everyone updated as we learn more.
