"Uhm...", I spoke intelligently, "They closed?"
Okay, so yeah. Apparently the Outdoor office has summer hours. Live and learn. I returned this week, however, all educated on their office hours so...
I walked into the Rec Center, showed my ID, headed to the Outdoor office, and
"Hi, it's me, Abby! Got any prizes left??"
Yes, the friendly people at Pedal Perks are keeping the drive alive year 'round! I was again informed that I got a prize for May and to stop in and pick it up. This time was fun, a "grab bag" of sorts. (as in, we get all these promo items, so we just throw them in a big bin and let the winners fight over stuff).
So the helpful Pedal Perkian slid out the big bin and told me to have at it. I was eligible for three items. So here are what I chose, in no particular order.
|REAR VIEW MIRROR!|
I've never had a mirror for bicycling, although I see others (mostly old people) who have them. I installed it on Bella since, as luck would have it, her left handgrip was all torn and messy - so not anymore! If nothing else, the mirror makes for a nice patch. On a side note, there were handgrips in the bin, but they were an ugly green that would have totally clashed with Beautiful Bella Orange.
The image in the mirror is me taking a picture of the image in the mirror in the mirror in the mirror... We have a large (cracked) mirror on the wall of our garage. Doesn't everyone?
And lastly, I grabbed a sleeveless base layer top that I didn't feel like taking a photo of. I doubt I'll wear it for bike riding, but it was my size and looked like a nice top for summer running. The product info page states, "Perfect for running" Aha! Knew it! ...Okay, so it wasn't that epiphanous.
Thank you, Pedal Perks People.
