It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year....

With all apologies to Andy Williams (and no, I'm not talking about the former Columbus Crew midfielder), I'm excited: Bike to Work Week is almost here! Unlike last year, when I was depressed at the amount of activity surrounding B2WW in Columbus, this year it's sounding great!

Austin Kocher and the folks at Consider Biking have upped the ante this year in a big way. There are lectures about biking planned, the mayor's getting involved, there is an unveiling of a new bike bridge and the like, and even a few more bike-cultury things going on like a bike/art show and a Tour of Columbus ride.

I doubt I'll be able to get out and do any of the during-the-work-day stuff, but I'm definitely making it to as much as I can!

Nice job, Consider Biking... you guys are upping the ante for Columbus cycle commuting!

People, not speed.

  2. OK, so first I was impressed by the reference to Andy Williams the singer. Then I was even more impressed by the reference to Andy Williams from the Crew. Nice work!

  3. Hey, I'm nothing if not a fountain of useless knowledge. And I used to be part of the Crew's website staff, so I'm pretty familiar with the Crew and their former players. I always wanted to see Williams play more for Columbus... but he was more hot and cold than running water.

  4. I liked Andy Williams a lot better when he was playing for the Fire, sorry, can't let go of my Chicago pride.

    Still a favorite Simpsons moment when Nelson gets choked up over Andy Williams singing "Moon River".
