The Finland Olympic men’s hockey team has been using bicycles to cruise around the Olympic Village in Sochi. Now, they’re autographing those bikes and putting them up for sale, with the proceeds going to a good cause.
Finnish sportswriter Matias Strozyk reported Tuesday that the bikes ridden by NHL stars Teemu Selanne, Kari Lehtonen, Olli Jokinen and others are being auctioned off for charity, and they’re already fetching a pretty penny. Bids for Selanne’s ride reportedly reached 1,500€ (roughly $2,059) within the first four hours.

There’s no news yet of what Tuukka Rask’s bike is going for, though. Bruins fans, get on that.
