Richard Sachs is a maker and a poet. His relentless dedication to his craft as a maker of bicycles is grounded in his disciplined and storied history as a racer. His clear and poignant insights as a poet (which is my term), are a gift from his childhood and, perhaps, his mother.
Richie’s ability to worry and obsess drive his ever-present awareness of all this.
He is a true maker poet. He romances what he makes and he makes what he romances. Love is in the work of his hands, his heart, his mind, and his soul.
