Bike Winter  Event, North Branch, August-2008

This Bike Winter event thoughtfully put together by Lowell. Some more info were pitched by Kathy (Helmets and safety), Martin (Not-To-Do's), Cigdem (Biking with Kids and Needs) and Jon Lind (www.DefeatsTheCar.com).

The weather was perfect, the location was great; right by the bike trail, viewed by many other cyclists. Jon (of De Fietsfabriek-USA) brought a bike for a test ride. We are talking about gathering an event for an afternoon with his other bikes to be tried out for test rides. Look out a date in mid to late September kids!
