Apologies for the late post, my cat flushed herself down the toilet again. Given the lateness of the hour I won't keep you, but I will let you know that on Wednesday, October 25th, this is happening:
Join us for a fast-paced hour of ideas, entrepreneurs and bikes, capturing the exciting things happening in the bike industry at DRAFT: NYC in Brooklyn.
61 Greenpoint Ave., Greenpoint, Brooklyn
The nearest train is G. Stop at Greenpoint Avenue and proceed to Brooklyn Bicycle Co. We're in suite 638 - buzz 970 and walk around the corner to the elevator and head up to the 6th floor!
6:30 - 7:00 pm: Beer and banter
7:00 - 8:00 pm: Program + Speakers
8:00 - 9:00 pm: More beer and banter
- Paul Steely White, Transportation Alternatives
- Eben Weiss, Bike Snob NYC
- Courtney Williams, The Brown Bike Girl
Yep, there I am, one of the featured speakers. As for what "exciting things happening in the bike industry" I'll be speaking about, I haven't decided yet, but I'm open to suggestions. At the moment I'm considering a treatise on how to determine the correct tire pressure, but if I give away all my pneumatic curation secrets I'll have nothing else left.
Also, a reader was kind enough to forward me the following commerical:
In it, Dad comes down the drive in his shiny GMC douchewagon:
Delighted, his son comes running:
Oooh boy, Dad has something special! What is it? A new bike maybe?
Nope! Kids don't ride bikes anymore, silly! It's a plastic truck!
Of course the kid is delighted:
And immediately takes off in it while wearing a fucking helmet:
All of which raises an important question:
If kids are now expected to wear helmets while driving, shouldn't adults be expected to do the same?
It only stands to reason.
