Richard Burke, known to many as “The Big Guy,” co-founded Trek Bicycle in 1976 and turned it into one of the world's leading bicycle companies. He touched people's lives in countless ways and when he passed away in 2008, it was deeply emotional for many. Dick always considered his son John, his best friend. They did the Boston Marathon, followed the Tour de France and later ran Trek together. Now John, the current president of Trek, has written One Last Great Thing, A Story of a Father and a Son, a Story of a Life and a Legacy. It's a powerful tribute to his father's incredible life and work as an inspiring businessman, leader and person. Taking readers deep into Trek's history, John shares how his father also taught, trained, and instilled in him the confidence and desire to be a leader. This portrait of a great man culminates with John telling his father on his deathbed of their 20 greatest moments together. This intimate portrayal of Dick's life and father-son relationship is filled with poignant experiences and lessons on getting the most out of life.
