Chrome bags at Great Northern Bicycle Co.

Chrome messenger bags are now available at Great Northern Bicycle Co. Come in and check them out; you will not be disappointed. Any bag that comes with a seat-belt closure gets two thumbs way up in my book. You can also fill the inside with ice and keep your favorite beverage cool.

Last spot filled for passage on the Mighty Quinn

I know this isn't really cycling related, but it's part of my family - as is cycling - so there's the relation. Today, at 3:29pm, my wife Jill and I welcomed the newest rider to our family. Albert Boaz Christianson weighed in at 8 lbs 11 oz (just 5 lbs less than Tom's new bike). Thanks to all who made it possible.

First Family Ride of 2010 - just me and my daughter

So, tonight was GNBC's first Monday Night Family ride of 2010. As it ended up, it was more of a Christianson family ride as my daughter Mamie and I were the only two attendees. This was a great father/daughter outing as Mamie and I took a nice ride north to Oak Grove park. The bridges are still up, so we stayed on the ND side, and worked our way back to the park for some great sliding, climbing, swinging, and hide-and-go-seek playing. As is the norm on every Family Ride, we returned to Great Northern Bicycle Co for our FREE scoop of gelato. Speaking of that, I wonder if Mamie had ulterior motives for going on the ride tonight? Either way, I would encourage all of you parents to join us next week for another chance to spend time together outside as a family (and get a FREE scoop of gelato from the cafe. See you next week.
