Now, happiness for every woman...

Cycle_guide_photo_2You know when you do an event and you get a big plastic bag of stuff from the sponsors. I got one at the Chicago Triathlon. The night before the race, I’m going through it and came across a catalog from the official bike shop sponsor – Village Cycle Center – which also happens to be a Trek Dealer.

But first, I must backtrack a little. Village Cycle also had a booth at the Chi-Tri Expo and I stopped by to introduce myself and say hello (and do a little PR for us WWR chicks). Usually I feel like a dope, because more often than not, the shops have no idea what I’m talking about –Women Who Ride, what? If you say so lady (but in a nice, indulgent way).

But, this time, they knew about us and said, “I thought you looked familiar, you’re on our home page.” How about that. We chatted for a few minutes about the new 2009 bikes coming out and then I had to head out.

Okay, fast forward, I’m sitting on the sofa, flipping through their catalog and holy buckets, I let out a yell. There we were at the top of the page under the heading “Now, happiness for every woman.” How about that!! Thanks Village Cycles! You made me one happy woman.

So you don’t think I’ve abandoned you, I leave for our Association’s Annual Meeting tomorrow in Saratoga Springs, NY. Fair warning, I may not have time to write next week. Though I did figure out how to post from my cell phone, I just can’t add photos or post comments.
