Our ever growing ice beards reached epic proportions. Snow shovelers and passersby couldn't quite process the bright yellow, ice bearded, abominable snow bicyclists. We did spot a couple of tracks along the bike path and passed a couple walking their bikes down by the Connecticut River, with whom we shared a hearty greeting.
Oh yeah - I'm organizing a screening of Bicycle Dreams, a documentary on the Race Across America (RAAM). The screening will be held downtown at the Wadsworth Atheneum Aetna Theater on March 7th at 7PM. We're also planning a bit of a social hour at a TBD Hartford establishment prior to the movie. A portion of ticket sales will go to Bike Walk CT, your favorite and only statewide bike advocacy heroes. Personally I don't understand what would possess someone to race across the US in 10 days while being trailed by a support vehicle, but hey, folks don't understand why I like riding my bike with ice on my face. Maybe I'll learn something, and in the meantime we'll notch some bike culture points for Hartford. Help us spread the word with this Facebook invite. Get your tickets here.
