"Wanted to share some photos from Whole Living magazine’s Bike to Work Day event today in NYC along the Hudson River Park bike path. We served up smoothies via a bike-powered blender and had lots of giveaways including two bikes – a Café 8 by Felt from Zen Bikes www.zenbikes.com and a Gazelle single speed from Gazelle gazellebicycles.us"

I first met Lisa via the interwebs when we noticed our photos coincided with multiple local events. Then I noticed she was featured in the NYT [here] and was so excited to see a local bikey woman being recognized alongside her awesome bag company, Hambone designs. I am happy to be her friend and share most of our talks while pedaling through our beautiful city.+ + + + + + + + + +
