Maybe most people have seen this, but I just discovered it and thought it was worth sharing just in case others missed it too.
The person who oversees the production of Ironweed bags and takes all my incoherent ramblings and incorporates them into our designs – well her husband was hit by a texting teen while out on a ride. The accident happened back in mid-October. I was shocked and saddened to hear of the accident. He’s a young man and a teacher and now he is paralyzed from the chest down. I will resist the impulse to get preachy here and simply say I hope the best for everyone involved
I’ve had several customers inquire about the progress of our trunk bag and I have shared this information with them. However, I figured it was time to mention this on the blog because our progress has been slowed. Needless to say, our attention has been elsewhere these past weeks.
I love this short film! Music by David Byrne and Brian Eno.
I spent the weekend training to become a League of American Bicyclists Certified Instructor (LCI). Despite the slapdash preparation for my presentations, I somehow managed to pass the course. The training was long but our wonderful trainers made it surprisingly enjoyable. It is very reassuring to me that other people take cycling seriously and give of their time to share with others. The Iowa City Bike Library hosted the training. This is part of a larger effort by the Bike Library to put more emphasis on community education.
