You Might Be a Biker If...

Just had to share this with you, from the good folks of the Virago Owners Club...

In case you've been sleeping under a rock, Spring has finally arrived in most parts of the US and with it, a whole new crop of bikes on the road. Remember to change lanes with care and share the road with motorcycles, for the safety of everyone!

Cool Way to "Pedal" Your Business

Just made a new friend with a bike messenger in Barcelona, Spain and I am extremely impressed with the way his messenger company presents itself. Really cool site and very interesting approach to building client relationships (also happen to be Kryptonite EV Mini lock users, but I digress). Check them out...and if ever in need of messenger services in Barcelona, give them a ring!

A Deer Cycles to End Hunger

Yes, these are tough times...enough said about that. But, there are still many people in our company (Ingersoll Rand) and elsewhere looking for ways to make the lives of others easier. I am humbled by those people. One I'll mention today is a new friend, Trish Karter, founder of Dancing Deer Bakery, soon to embark on a 1500 bike ride from Atlanta to Boston, to raise attention to, and financial support for, feeding hungry families. She doens't need to put her body out there, just her celebrity. But, she wouldn't be satisfied with that. Follow her on twitter to learn about her progress and give her moral support.

Happy Tax Day!

Oh boy, its been way too long since last post...but appropriate that I break the fast with a comment on civil disobedience. Will be interesting to see how the Teabag demonstrations planned for today will be covered by the media. Sitting in Boston, home of the original Teabag demonstration, this issue is especially poignant. Wonder how things would have turned out if the original civil disobedients had ridden bikes away from the scene of the action? Happy Tax Day, All!
