Rick Twomey's Birthday is a holiday at BMX Society

Recommended Posts

Rick Twomey of Rick's Bike Shop fame's birthday is a holiday for us... the man had such an impact on BMX, this site and indeed... Rick continues to have a deep impact on my life personally - and that may sound melodramatic, but I assure you - it is literally true.  Where I live and what I do for a living now... all of it is connected to my relationship to Rick. This is not lost on me.

Forever grateful and with deep respect... Happy Birthday Rick

Rick personally sent me a shirt through this site a few years back. I wore it a lot and then retired it to the bike room (left of the window). He didn't know me from Adam at first but more than once he and I had some good BMX talks on Facebook years back. He always was so kind to me. Steve, I never made the connection until you just commented about your job but yes he DEFINITELY has had a huge impact on you and your life choices. I'm sure he's smiling now. Happy Birthday, Rick.

Probably my most cherished piece of BMX memorabilia.

Rick was a special guy. He and I probably only talked a dozen times on the phone, but that man taught me some serious life lessons. At the time we were speaking, i had just moved out of my house and only saw my kids on weekends, and it was a hard adjustment for me. Rick taught me a lot about being a dad, and a proper man in general. I will always remember the lessons he sneaked into our talks, and will cherish the talks we had. Deeply missed....
