Team Giga-Bike is featured on the A-Channel Morning Show promoting "A Day in Yellow With Dave Zabriskie". This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be one of thirty cyclists to join professional racer Dave Zabriskie on Saturday, November 19, 2005 for a brisk and scenic 50-km ride during the annual Team Giga-Bike fundraiser in Victoria, B.C.

"This event is coming together with the support of our local community and riders. Appearing on the A-Channel this morning allowed us to reach new audiences outside the cycling community. We have posted video and photos from today's show on our website. Go to to watch!" Says Calvin Straathof, Giga-Bike President
