I'm published!

Yeah, ummm my story got picked for letter of the month in this month's Bicycling magazine. I really didn't want to tell anyone cuz they butchered my letter and it reads like I ride the short bus but I'm so excited I couldn't contain it anymore.

I got a free tool kit too! So here it is in all it's glory. Let the ragging commence. (I swear my letter was sooo much better)

Congratulations, and enjoy the tools. Or pass them along to the rest of us if you're not going to use them.
