Akron Life & Leisure magazine featured the Akron Bicycle Club (ABC) this month in an article called “Fun on Two Wheels” (hey, have they seen my blog?? Copyright infringement!). The photographer had shown up on the first Thursday night ride I did this year and, guess what, Mars Girl appears as one of the faces of ABC. I’m so glad I wore my Giant jersey that day so that I could represent for all the thinking cyclists who own the best road bike in the world! (Sorry, Trek owners, but Giant cyclists rock TOSRV; therefore we own the world.)
My good friend and ABC’s newsletter editor, Fred Wise was voice for the article. He pretty much summed the purpose of our club nicely by stating that it’s about “socializing and sharing a love of something with others.” I’m a little mystified, however, by his comment, “It’s a loosey-goosey organization.” Huh? That kind of sounds like we’re involved in some sort of group sex thing. Apparently, I’m missing something on some of those weekend long social trips I don’t attend!
Cheers to Shelley Blundell (writer) and Ray Saviciunas (photographer) of Akron Life & Liesure for a great article! It was nice to see our club so eloquently highlighted to the Akron reading audience with the familiar faces of some of our most active members. It really paints us in a respectable light and hopefully entices other people to look us up!
And… what a pretty bitchin’ action shot of me (above), wouldn’t you say? I’m not too fond of the picture in the page below. My photogenic magic only lasts for a few good shots. A picture of another club member from that same Thursday night ride also appears in the table of contents of the magazine.
