Dinner with Apple Charlotte last night was amazing! The home-made salsa and guac prepped our taste buds for the best ever Mexican food. Dinner plates were piled with tender pork verde, smoky enchiladas, mild and fluffy chile rellenos, Mexican cabbage relish and perfectly-cooked pintos. If that wasn’t enough to wow our tummies, Char prepared an apple panque and a plate of brownie bites, so as not to leave out a treat for the chocolate lovers. She thought of everything.
Thanks to Kelly, Melissa, Carol, Karen, Mark, Marty and Char for such a wonderful night.

Thanks to everyone who signed up for our fundraiser dinner coming up this Sunday. We have maxed out our registrations, plus some :,,)
If you missed it this year, sorry, and please try next time. We do this every summer.
P2P was back at The Shop parking lot this year tuning up bikes. This event benefits the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery and showcases the good things happening in south Perry and around Spokane. We made several new friends and had a great time. Thanks to all our committed volunteers, the fair organizers, Crow, and two new people who helped with bikes, Meagan and Brian. This was also our first event with the new mobile units. They are sweet! Check out Jeff’s pics to see the set-up.
Next time you’re in the neighborhood, say hi to Miguel at The Bike Shop. He just opened a full-service shop on the 1100 block of south Perry. Ask him about the free bikes he’s planning on refurbishing and making available to folks in the neighborhood.
Erica Roscoe, Joe Tomlinson, and Jeff Everett’s designs have been chosen for the 2009 Spokefest spoke cards.
Their designs are smart and unique. They depict SpokeFest’s and P2P’s vision of cycling as a fun activity that offers something for everyone. If you want to sport your own ’09 Spokefest spoke card, register online. Sorry you have to wait until September 13th to get yours, but we think it’ll be worth the wait!
There are only 12 spots left at our fundraiser dinner. And it’s no wonder, with a scrumptious Mexican menu planned and prepared by Chef Char Zyskowski, and local wine and beer pairings, this event is sure to fill up! Email Liza at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.

We just want to thank Burley Design, makers of high-quality bike trailers, for their generous in-kind donation. Burley’s donation enabled us to stretch the grant money from New Belgium to purchase two more trailers than we were planning on buying. We purchased four Flatbed bike trailers, and we are busy getting the tools and supplies to equip them. We cannot wait to start pedaling (not merely peddling a message of sustainable transportation, empowerment and building healthier communities!
