Angle Lake Cyclery gets on 2011 NBG Bus & Busycle

Angle Lake Cyclery, a longtime, national giant in the recumbent bicycle industry, just came on with a logo position on the bus that leaves San Jose for Boston, May 2, per our soon to be finalized 2011 Mayors' Ride schedule HERE. Next summer, 26 different  Mayor's offices and media markets will also see the Angle Lake name on the 19 foot banner that spreads above the 14 people who will be pedaling our Busycle pictured below. If you are ever in the Pacific Northwest, do make sure to get over to Seattle, WA and the Angle Lake bike shop. They have at least 50 different recumbents on the showroom floor and more than 20 of them are trikes!!

While the above is a picture of us at our destination, Como Esta Mexican food in Palo Alto, CA, here is a video of our ride to it:

In other news, the people at Blue Sky Cycle Carts will be putting their industrial  sewing machines to work on creating a new front pak to replace the one you see pictured below. The handsome, securely mounted handlebar bag that will result will be seen on TVs and in newspapers all over America. And as it is, many millions of people will associate the advertiser who occupies that front most position on the 1891 Eagle with the coast to coast bicycle highway  that will one day result...

To see all our advertisers, go HERE.

         THX 4 all of U!!

Best Bike Trailer Buys Ad on 2011 San Jose to Boston Bus

The people at Blue Sky Cycle Carts just came on with an ad on the bus in support of our San Jose to Boston ride that leaves San Jose on May 2. What's also exciting is that the review I did for them 15 or more years ago, still holds true today. They last forever and can do almost any kind of hauling job.

I am proud to have them as a sponsor. Here are some of the many uses I have  put mine to work  on:

Transporting wheels that don't fit in a car

Hauling a generator that coos brown rice and charges my lap top as I ride

Taking the Eagle  in for repair.......

            THX 4 all of U!!
