Bulldog Spirit

Tour de Fresno

Imagine TimeOut leading the Bulldogs onto the field riding one of these. This Fresno State-themed bicycle was designed and built by Tim Garcia, the creator of Timmy Fresh Brand bikes. Garcia assembled this beauty for the Bulldog Foundation to auction off in support of student-athletes. The winning bid was $7,500 at the Football Kickoff Dinner at the Fresno Convention Center in August.

The lucky winner? None other than Fresno State alumnus Brian Panish, a Los Angeles-based attorney and former Bulldogs football player who was recently honored with the Top Dog Distinguished Alumnus Award.

“Being from the Valley my whole life, born a Bulldogs fan and supporting Bulldog athletics is what inspired me,” Garcia says. “The dedication to grow my Timmy Fresh Brand bike business, just like growing the Bulldog spirit in the Valley, is what it’s all about.”
