My friend Jon recently launched an awesome website called Awesome Friends Club. His premise for the site is “my friends are awesome and do awesome stuff and this is where i tell you about the stuff they do that’s awesome.” I’m very happy to included! At the bottom of the page he has this quote, “We’re not getting old, we’re getting awesome.” That’s awesome.
Tomorrow I am heading to NY for another I Love My Bike book release party—this time it’s going to be at Affinity in Brooklyn. The event will start at 7 with free tacos and beer until 9! Come say hello!
