Katie Spotz, a Mentor, Ohio native, become an international celebrity earlier this year when she became the youngest person to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Her adventure also raised funds and awareness of the need to create safe drinking water for billions of people in need around the world.

Back in 2006, Century Cycles helped Katie prepare for a previous adventure, when we outfitted her with a Giant OCR Composite 2 road bicycle, which she then proceeded to pedal 3,300 miles across the USA, in memory of her grandmother, who had recently passed away from lung disease.
Katie was recently a victim of a robbery, where she lost the bike, as well as her car and other sports equipment, including the oars she used on her Trans-Atlantic row. The incident is a great loss for Katie, in terms of both the monetary and sentimental value of the items.
The bicycle is a black/carbon fiber color, with blue highlights:
