If you’re coming to Pedal Nation, stop by the Filmed by Bike booth to say hi and for a chance to enter to win free festival passes. We’ll also have those hot new posters with custom-made bike part typography and our stickers.

Neat way to screen out and miss the assistance of non-FB riders — link to a Facebook log-in instead of a page. Nice blog, though, seriously. Have a fun move!
