As many of you know, central Iowa cyclist, Wade Franck, was killed by a drunk driver last August while riding on an organized ride in Des Moines. His family is using his memorial fund to create a bikers’ plaza at the trailhead at Ankeny Market Pavilion. The family has also donated one of his favorite bikes, his tricked-out Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra, to be auctioned online on Feb. 27 ending at 8 p.m. Proceeds go to the bike plaza project.

This early 1990s Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra classic bicycle comes from the collection of Ankeny cyclist, Wade Franck.

Proceeds from the sale of this bike will be used by the Ankeny Rotary Club to help fund a cycling rest stop at the Ankeny Market Pavilion and trailhead.
