You should have jerseys made up.

You could be "Areas most friendly bike rider" and the rest of us will naturally be "Friends of the areas most friendly bike rider"

As long as it has a mountain on it, i'm in.

You guys really screwed up by not putting my name on the C&A jersey. "Mr. Beanz" will soon be a household name and in a few years, a collector's item!

You need to edit your signature line and add "as seen in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune" next to you blog address.
