Hey! Nice! 23 people have responded to the survey about spring/summer hours. Thanks. If you haven’t take the survey yet you should. It can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/X8JHNN2.

FYI: So far Sunday from noon till 4 is pretty hot.

We’re bartering with the Spokane Bike Swap folks: Your time for free admission. Yes, Pedals2People will set up a table to tell everyone at the Bike Swap about the great service we offer to the biking community. We gain exposure so that we can grow and get more kids (and their parents) riding and learning about bikes, we can get more volunteers to help  teach and tune, AND you get in to the Bike Swap for free if you volunteer to staff the table or help out the Bike Swap organizers! Perfect.  Fri. Sat. & Sun. Mar. 23-25. Check it out.

So, just last night you woke up at 3:22 am, turned to your partner or cat and said, “Gee, I wonder when the P2P shop will add an additional day for the spring and summer busy time.”

Well, now you can turn to the aforementioned partner/cat and say you took the survey and will soon know.

Yep, that’s right. A person that a lot of us know hasn’t been a very good steward of bicycle riding.

Yes, a short ride was done the other day. (Mainly because the car was left downtown after an evening of imbibing)  Otherwise none.

It’s happened to a lot of us.  Maybe even most of us.   We get busy, involved in other things.  In the case of the “Someone” he’s working on a house that’s getting gutted and remodeled and honestly doesn’t know where  he’ll wake up some mornings.   So begins the inevitable fall.

Readers of the “Someone’s” old blog know that this isn’t a new thing.  Likewise “Someone” tends to get a bit obsessive about getting back on the bike.   Call it done.  

Back to riding to work(s) and around town as much as possible.  Dealing with sore legs, huffing, puffing and wheezing up the smallest hill.  We can do this.

Have you been baaaad?  Do you want to be goooood?  Do it!  It’s easy. Heck, if you take the challenge and haven’t been riding as much as you want and start and I’ll buy you a beer/coffee/tea.   

Let’s bump it up a notch.  You haven’t been riding, you/we’ve fallen off the wagon.   Ride for a week I’ll buy you a pitcher or a coffee and a pastry.  Do it for a month we’ll have a party. 

What say you?   

I started today. 

Till later,

Jacque – Out
