How can you be sure that's Charlie Brown? Looks like he's wearing a mask.

Do my love handles count as mascots? I haven't named them. I suppose I could

Hahahaha! Charlie Brown came with a mask, the Halloween version. The pic was around Halloween so Gina slapped on the mask for our rides that week but that is Chuck under the mask. Dwarf-like Chuck, butt a Chuck it is!

I had an idea for a mascot when I was on my ride earlier this afternoon. I may go look for it tonight. I'll keep y'all posted.

It's a work in progress. I just had the idea the other day while on a ride and then (ironically) this thread showed up when I got home. So now I feel I must make it so.

I did have Georgia the Dog on the back of my seatpost, but took her off when I hacksawed the seatpost, and she hasn't returned. I found her on the street and picked her up a couple of years ago. She's still a little flattened. She DID make a trip to Louisiana with me on a 400k, though.
