Ed Zink, center, owner of Mountain Bike Specialists, holds a State of Colorado Proclamation from Gov. John Hickenlooper on Thursday naming March 1 as Ed Zink Day, after Mary Monroe Brown, near left, executive director of Trails 2000, read and presented it to him, following Durango Mayor Dick White, right, who read the city’s proclamation also naming March 1 Ed Zink Day, and John Whitney, left, Western Slope regional director for Sen. Michael Bennet, read a letter from the senator congratulating Zink on all his accomplishments as the business celebrated its 50th Anniversary.
Mountain Bike Specialists celebrated its 50th Anniversary on Thursday with about 50 people gathering at noon for the kickoff of the day-long celebration. Owners Ed and Patti Zink were surprised by how many former employees and customers from the past showed up.
