Christmas party conflicts…

The Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition Winter Bash happens tonight (6 PM to 9 PM, Old Adobe Building, Mountain View, California; free for members, $25 entry for non-members includes 1 year membership). For the third year in a row as an SVBC member, I have to skip this party — this year, there’s a Christmas party at my wife’s university, and Mrs Fritz’s happiness trumps measly bike fun.

The Old Adobe Building is located conveniently near the Castro Street Caltrain station, and a good time will be had by all.

    The party was big fun: SVBC gloated over its recent victories (as previously noted here), auctioned off a lot of fine cycling-related items (Phil Wood label wine!) and promised to try harder in 2009. I too had a painful conflict, though. Why can't we have some Holiday events in April?
