I'm going to be tied up for the rest of today and tomorrow manning a trade show booth. It will most be likely Friday before I post again. Then, Friday afternoon, it's off to Portland. My weekend will be two long days doing instructor training.
In the meantime, here's an invitation.
No matter how incredibly fascinating I may be, once in a while it would be nice to have a break, wouldn't it? That's where you come in.
I'd like to feature a guest here and there. This blog is particularly about using a bike for everyday transportation which includes riding to work. It would be great if you rode to work at least once in a while. That won't be mandatory, though. If you're reading this blog then your bike is more than just a show piece. That works for this situation.
If you'd like to share your story please let me know. I know there's some of you that are newer riders. You could share your training experiences, what's helped you advance your skills, why you started riding, etc. If you've been riding longer we'd love to hear your story, too. That's one of the neat things about riding. It acts as a catalyst that blends diverse personalities, experience levels, and occupations, among other things.
A picture of you and your bike would be great. There's some of you closer to me and I'd be happy to swing by with Sophie and take your photo. You can also share your own pictures. I can help with writing or we can just let it roll as you write it. It just seems like it would be fun to open it up a little, as it were.
Send me an e-mail expressing your interest and we'll work it out from there. I set up an account specifically for this. Any e-mail addresses or contact information you send will be held in strictest confidence. The only thing that will be revealed is what you ok for sharing in the blog posts.
Think it over and send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org Operators are standing by!
Miles and smiles,
