Sorry for the fuzzy photo. That’s the shirt. It’s blank on the back.
It was designed by Klay-the-great.
Andy, down at Boo Radley’s is selling them. Not sure yet on exact cost. But I’m thinking probably $17. Don’t quote me on that if you go down there and they are $17.99!
We make $5 for each one. So go buy (at least) one!
I would think these might make for a great gift for out-of-town friend and family cyclist-types who miss rolling the easy streets of Spokane.
We did a run of 48. If they sell, we’ll keep doing it.
On the door front.
You didn’t really think we’d leave that behind did you? We love Tiffany art. We love Glen art. We love the bike sign hanging out front too. We’re taking it all with us to the new place.
We also love Jacque. He’s the most low-maintenance awesome dude I know. I can go without talking or seeing him for 6 months. And in a single weekend and call him asking for help. To wit:
P2P: “the database you built for us needs updating. Oh yeah, and the cash register you donated did weird stuff, can you fix that? You’re pretty good with tools, right? How about you run all over town, find a replacement door for the Tiffany door and then install it?”
Jacque: “Sounds great! I’ll call you if I need anything.”
Done. Done. and Done.
You could be *this* happy!

This is Dylan. Not only is he a really fast (and lumber jacky) CX racer, he’s a web developer. He has ported our site over from our buddy Alex Wetmore’s basement to another hoster and he’s ported our platform to WordPress.
Not only is Alex an expert tire changer — and really, he is (with a patch, he can replace a tire in well under 10 minutes, and we all know you must wait at least 5 minutes for the glue to vulcanize before adding air to a patched tube) — but he’s also the hoster of many websites and bike-related lists (bikelist.org, phred.org, etc).
So the new website is a port to WordPress. Note we have the ability to have pictures in our posts now! Yes. We shall henceforth commit to abuse this feature.
Alex and Dylan are both super nice righteous dudes that put in a lot of time in between their busy lives to help keep the virtual P2P online. Alex has put in at least 10 hours on this latest project and we sort of stopped counting after 30 hours for Dylan. This is huge and we so appreciate it.
We can now deal with comments too! So that gives you an opportunity to test out the new platform by thanking Alex and Dylan too.
Bucket panniers that is! John Henry and Ryan have been masterfully planning some amazing bucket panniers. Check back soon and in time for the holiday gift giving too!

The perfect time to get to know your bike–FALL–and we’re offering much talked about maintenance classes:
basics/brakes, drivetrain, and wheel/hub class. Ck the calendar for all the details! You don’t want to miss these classes. When the riding is scarce, it’s time to dig in and tune your bike!
P2P has an opening for our Member-at-Large board position. We are looking for someone who has previous board or committee experience, a person who is connected to the community and is interested in building up P2P and its place in Spokane. Since our inception in 2007, Pedals2People has organized 12 different community outreach events, tuned-up over 400 bikes, taught over 50 students bike mechanics, opened Spokane’s only DIY bike shop, and shipped 200 bikes to Africa.
We’re headed toward 2011 and beyond, and we need someone to complete our board. Please send us an email if you are interested!
This Sunday, the 19th, is the last Sunday the P2P shop will be open for a while. Change of the seasons means change in shop availability.
Take advantage of our last Sunday hours: 12-4
