    Thanks all for coming up to Vancouver by bike…even with that horrible downpour today. And thanks to River Maiden Coffee for hosting it! And thanks 2x for Magpie Messengers for coming along too. it was well attended with 30+ folks.

    There was a great idea of organizing a similar bridge crossing ride again into Vancouver along other coffee shops with the Rwanda ‘bicyclette de la livraison de café’. But without the rain this time.

    Perhaps there could be a ‘move by bike’ bringing that day’s of Stumptown coffee by bike to these coffee shops – a great PR event and Pedal Palooza event!
