Just found out last night that I won a very cool cargo rack from Rivendell Bicycle Works in the Let's Go Ride A Bike Summer Games! I'm already scheming how to use it! Here's Dottie reading my name. Even she sounds excited!
Now I just need a killer commuter bike, like one of Rivendell's beauties to go with it. Or maybe a Boston Roadster by ANT Bicycles. And then there's Sweetpea Bicycles. Or the grandaddy prize, a Batavus BuB.
Perhaps next year.
In the meantime, there's the next round of challenges in the Summer Games: New Territory. I think maybe the dudes and I will try to take our bikes on the bus. That would definitely be a challenge for me! Here are the details.
June 28-July 18: New Territory
- Ride a greenway
- Have a bicycle picnic
- If you don’t normally ride to work, commute by bike, or by bike/train or bike/bus
- If you do commute, take the long way home: add distance to your usual ride
- Explore a new part of town by bike
Many thanks to Trish and Dottie for organizing this contest and making the activities so much fun! It's nice to see so much enthusiasm for biking outside the realm of racing.
