After going through a bad breakup, cyclist Rafael Cletero loaded up his bike and began touring. On a stopover in Fort Collins, Colorado, he started fixing bikes for family and friends. What blossomed was a tumultuous journey to what is now known as the Fort Collins Bike Co-op, a nonprofit bike shop run by the community he built.
