There are people among us that make the world a better place. Teachers that take the time to work with our kids, doctors that spend extra hours trying to figure out solutions to problems that have yet to be solved and community leaders that step in for the common good. As a cyclist, my world involves bicycles. I suppose that goes without saying, but I mention it because in making my personal world a better place I have to consider the people inside the bicycling industry alongside those that contribute to the general population (i.e. teachers, doctors, lawyers, politicians, etc). So it is, without any obligation, my pleasure to relay to you a short list of the people that I believe are making the immediate cycling world a better place. While I will obviously not hit all of them on the first try (I apologize if I missed somebody), the following persons have immediately affected, for the positive, the growth and success of the Almanzo Project.
Jeff Frane + this
Andy Lambert (used to be this)
These are just a few of the people inside the cycling world that deserve a round of applause. They are all Minnesota people with big hearts and right minds. They are shop owners, designers, lovers of all things bikes and otherwise. They are our riding partners and our neighbors. If you see them around, be sure and tell them thank you...for me.
