It’s been good to meet up with several people in the big world of bicycling. This Web 2.0 thing is partly about social networking and it’s nifty to connect the world of the web with meat world while I was at the Tour of California race start in Sausalito today.
Say hello to Bob Mionske, the bicycling lawyer and book author. That’s his buddy Sky Yaeger behind him.
Speaking of Sky Yaeger, here she is showing us how to control the bike.
The woman in the Fox shirt is Erin, the marketing mind at Swobo bikes. She’s riding a pre-production Swobo Del Norte bicycle.
This Italian guy is Fulvio Aquati, the General Manager of Deda Elementi in Italy. He’s riding a Swobo Novak town bike. I love his sock!
Meet Jonathan Tessler, the man behind Bicycle.net.
This is Marilyn Price, the woman who runs Trips for Kids. Trips for Kids is a non-profit that helps disadvantaged children discover the joy of mountain biking.
Below are Peter Cossins, editor for Bike Radar and other cycling publications, Gary Boulanger, writer for Bike Radar, and Gary’s daughter Sam. Some of you might remember Gary as the man behind Gaansari and Fisso Bikes. Gary is also known as The Bike Evangelist.
Tony Tom here owns A Bicycle Odyssey, a bike shop in Sausalito. He started the shop in 1975 when he was just 19 years old.
The guy at the cash register is Andrew, who manages A Bicycle Odyssey, a bike shop in Sausalito. He’s a really nice guy.
bikesgonewild played host for me in Sausalito. He wishes to remain somewhat anonymous, but he’s an amazingly nice guy. Those Enduro cycling pants are from Europe and look tres cool. Check out is old school Bianchi converted to SS with shorty bars.
Last but not least, a shout out goes out to the lovely lady behind the wheel of this Rock Racing Cadillac, who impatiently yelled at bikesgonewild and I to “GET OFF THE ROAD” when she was behind us and couldn’t figure out that we were in the left turn lane in order to turn left.
