Make Black Friday a GREEN Friday this year!

Following the lead of REI and others, we've decided we're going to be CLOSED on Black Friday (11/27/15).  Since none of us here are really fond of braving the crowds on Black Friday at other stores, we're doing to try something different... we're going for a bike ride!

Many of you probably recall our famous Guilt Reduction Rides, which used to be held on Thanksgiving Day.  We took a hiatus from those the last few years, and now we're hoping you can join us on Friday instead.  Think about it... a bike ride in the fresh air, or sitting in traffic, fighting your way to some big box store sale?

We'll leave from the shop at 10:00am, so please try to get here a bit ahead of that.  Our destination is the train station in downtown Herndon.  We'll have coffee and tea and perhaps some treats back at the shop.

Since we're a drop off point for donated food for the folks at the Committee Helping Others, we encourage everyone to bring some canned goods to help out those less fortunate!

Here's a blast from the past... Guilt Reduction Ride 2008.  That's John and Ces Brunow in blue jackets next to the yellow tandem. Tim is next to them in the yellow vest with less grey hair than he has now.
