GANDALF SAYS YOU'RE BAD AND YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD + BTWD RECAP + WORKSHOP FUNTIME WITH MITCH

Good day, friends! How's things? Tell me about your day. Really. I'm here to help. I am your shoulder to cry on, your ears to borrow, your soft, steady embrace to...

 Wait.

The f*&% am I doing?

You know what?

No.

Nope, not this time.

 

Today, dear reader, I don't care.

Today, the burden is on you.

Today, I only have three questions to ask:

 

Did you bike to work today? How about this week? This month?

 

If you answered yes to any of these, pat yourself on the back, pour your beverage of choice, and please continue reading. You've earned it.

 

As for the rest of you?

 

 

Stop reading. Immediately. You are no longer welcome here. Right now, the only place you're welcome is Guilt City, population: you.

...

Hmm...?

Is that remorse I feel emanating across the Internet's ether?

*HEAVY SIGH* 

UGH...

 

But no beverage and you have to feel real bad about it, k? And go ride more. Good for the body, good for the soul, and all that, if you'll recall.

Now on to the news!

(And I take it back—you don't need to feel real bad.)

(...)

(Maybe just a little bad.)

Thanks again for another successful Bike to Work Day! We all had fun, and, judging by the damage you guys did on the free food and coffee, we imagine you did, too.

Yeah, guy, we're looking at you.

Many takers, as you can see.

And you can bet your sweet buns we'll be back next year for round... what is it, round three now? Man, time flies.

Thanks again guys! Couldn't do it without all you enthusiasts, loyals, and diehards.

Patagonia!

Name drop, woo!

You like Patagonia, don't you?

Of course you do. Everyone likes Patagonia. So do we.

But you know what we like more than Patagonia? Partnering with Patagonia to share our crew's bikely wisdom with the world.

Last week on May 21 we held a free 2-hour bike maintenance workshop, led by our very own Mitchell Wittenberg! 

We had a fine time, and we look forward to more events like this in the future. Stay tuned, friends.

Now go be well, do good work, and—*ahem*, yes, apparently I'm on a Bill and Ted kick lately—be excellent to each other.
