There is a brisk snap to the breeze and frost on the pumpkin, old man winter is nearly at our doorstep. We find ourselves doing the mental math calculations to determine the coming of spring and milder temperatures. While we prepare for the onset of freezing weather we long earnestly for warm, sunny days.
The Groody Brothers are also in eager anticipation of spring. We have not gone into complete hibernation, especially with regards to the annual Velocipede & Tweed Indeed – The Kansas City Tweed Ride. Rest assured that the wheels are already in motion for our third confab upon the most marvelous machine ever devised by man.
We have established a date for our next event. Be sure to mark your social engagement calendar for the Saturday, April 14th, 2012. Beyond that we have made some mentions of soliciting an artist or two. We have some other need for volunteers for assorted tasks. Please contact us if you are feeling the need for tweed.
Speaking of calendars… A local young lady, Caroline Smith by name, one of our participants, has, for the second year, assembled an assortment of area cyclists and their machines into a rather attractive date book. As it happens, several of our merry band are featured in series of stunning photographs by Tom Styrkowicz. These are quite suitable for personal display or as a gift to someone who fancies fine attire and beautiful bicycles. The proceeds from the sale of the calendars will benefit both of our previous beneficiaries, Revolve and BikeWalkKC.
The calendars are sold at local bicycle shops for the paltry sum of $20.00. They can also be purchased via the internet at http://coachcarolinesmith.com/bicyclecalendar.html. Please do give them a look. We believe that you will be delighted with your purchase while at the same time assisting two worthwhile organizations.
