Jason won last week's drawing for a Road ID gift card, and he shared this story with us. It's a great story that encapsulates so much of what we're about - fun for all ages, the great after party, and discovering new ways to incorporate your bicycle into your everyday life.
Met you briefly at last year's Minneapolis UAR, where I rode with a friend. I just wanted to reach out to you to personally say thanks for putting this event on, I know it's got to be a ton of work, but I also wanted to let you know you're accomplishing your mission of spreading the good word about biking.
I had never ridden on the Minneapolis Greenway, prior to last year's UAR- Now I commute on it to work, about 3-4 days/week. I brought my family to this year's Minneapolis UAR, and we won 2nd & 3rd place in the family division, and my eldest son won the Mustache dance-off (of which I am more proud). I also got 5 teams of my co-workers to attend, and they had a blast!
Yesterday, the Monday after the UAR, they asked their Mom if they could ride to school, and they all did.
Anyways, thought you'd enjoy hearing that- and thanks again- Keep up the good work! We will all be signing up right away next year!
