While riding today in the heavy rain (and being totally prepared) I thought about a couple of individuals who have given me invaluable tips, advice and general knowledge on biking and commuting.
Do you have anyone you'd like to thank?
I'd like to start by thanking everyone's favorite marauder, Mr. Martin Hazard. Marauding is only one of Martin's specialties. As well as a leader of many creative rides, he is an wonderful teacher. Any of you who have either taken one of his classes at West Town or dropped by Performance for advice on anything bike related will agree. He's a great resource and a super friendly guy who simply loves helping people.
Second person I'd like to thank, also related to West Town, is its founder Alex Wilson. He also has a knack for explaining complicated bike jargon in simple "laymen" terms. His passion for expanding the community of biking to children and lower income and minority groups is amazing.
I'm sure I have other biking teachers to thank, but these two have helped shape me into the biker and commuter I am (and hope to become).
Enough warm fuzzies from me….
