I got a package in the mail today - one that just gives me a solidly warm and fuzzy feeling about bike people out there. Stevil over at Swobo shipped over the beginnings of the prize pool for Cranksgiving Ann Arbor 2008. Stevil, along with being My Favorite Swobo Employee, is the brains and fingers behind How To Avoid The Bummer Life as well.
I hear people talk about "doin' you a solid". I didn't quite know what that meant until now. This guy, half a continent away, who I've never met, is helping out with prizes for a race to benefit a food bank he hadn't heard of before. Maybe it's love for bike people, maybe it's a promotional opportunity, maybe it's a charitable tendency, maybe all of the above. I don't care what you call it. That, my friends, is what I call a standup guy.
So now we've got these sweet 100% Merino jerseys that are 100% ready to be 100% won. 100% Awesome.
