Please tell us your cycling new year's resolutions. If you do, then we'll tell you ours.

A fond farewell

Our head mechanic, Danny, is moving on.

We are feeling 2 things:

1. We are very sad that we won't get to hear Danny's wise cracks and strange comments. We are sad that we are losing our friend.
2. We are happy for him because it is time for him to move on. It is time for Danny to get out of Dodge (Denver) and see the world on his own.

We all wish him the best luck ever and hope he will bless us with a visit when he is back in town!

To celebrate and mourn at the same time, let's all drop off a bottle or 6 pack of Dr. Pepper to him on Thursday... his last day.

It's 9 out

The temperature outside is 9 degrees. I drove my roommates car into the store bright and early this morning and saw what we *don't sell* here at the store.

First of all, I got COLD. Why? Because cars have windshields that get frosty and you have to remove the frost before you can safely go anywhere. I wasn't moving around, so I got cold.
Secondly, I got stuck in traffic. Light after light, I moved so slowly. I literally could have jogged into work faster.
And lastly, I burned a bunch of gas. 

So bikes... you step outside and go, not giving the cold a good chance to catch you standing around. Dressing appropriately, making sure you are ready to roll and not letting wind be your enemy. Secondly, not riding on main streets while cycling is faster than waiting in traffic on "fast streets".  And bikes, unless you are doing something weird, don't burn up the petrol.
