at the Winter Bike to Work Day:
Places the Black Sheep Bike and I traveled
A) S.E. Corner of Harmony and Timberline: Sponsored by the Poudre Vally Hospital and Peloton Cycles, it was my first stop in the morning. The bike mechanic taped my handle-bar tape which came undone last week. Thank you! They had Breakfast burritos but I didn’t have any: Too early!
B) Lemay and Oakridge Drive: Sponsored by The Edd and I and Recycled Cycles. Looked like good stuff, but still too early– and I had to get to Old Town Fort Collins.
C) 200 Linden Street: Sponsored by The Wright Life, Rocky Mountain Publishing and Cranknstein. My Black Sheep bike is resting against the sculpture “Free To Dance”, a piece of Art Action first seen in September 2010 HERE. Breakfast Burritos.
E) Oak Street Plaza: Sponsored by Bike Fort Collins, Climate Wise, El Monte, Rio Grande and The Point.
F) 250 E. Mountain Ave.: Sponsored by the Bohemian Foundation, ExperiencePlus! Bicycle Tours and Fort Collins Food Co-op. I got a free ankle strap at this spot.
G) 221 E. Lincoln Ave.: Sponsored by In-Situ, Tastebuds and New World Sports. This has always been a favorite stop on this tour!
H) Near Oak Street Plaza: Not a breakfast stop but YET ANOTHER TOUR DE FAT CAR FOR BIKE TRADER! Yes, it appears that one of the bike traders from Boise, Idaho is now living in Fort Collins. His Black Sheep bike is two ears old. Look at all the decals on this baby!
I) 500 Linden Street: Sponsored by New Belgium, Ridekick and Performance Bicycles. I hung around for a while to sample the hot breakfast and talk to the founder of Ridekick. It’s 9:30 am and all the morning stations are closed.
So, what’s that make it? Eight breakfast stops in one morning? On my way to work yet? Well it is Wednesday and I have to feed the insects at the CSU Bug Zoo, so I guess I really do have someplace to go.
