Friday was National Bike To Work day and as per tradition, Hawley hosted its annual Bike To Work Rally. Many thanks to Heather (product manager) for captaining the event and her very capable lieutenants Diane, Julie, Katherine and anybody else I missed. The pancakes were delicious this year! Also thanks to reps from Genuine Innovations, Formula, SRAM, Nuun and Gatorade for participating. And now let’s loosen our blog-sphincter and dump a giant pile of photos from the event…
Pre-ride meet up. Adam (digi-media) and Adam (accounting). The two Adams. Dylan (shipping lead) looks disgusted, rightfully so.
Brantley, the world’s oldest man, is coming back to the sales department! Let the knowledge dropping and chronic wheezing commence!
Clayton (inside sales) chats with our Formula rep and his bonny Kelly.
Doug (inside sales) and his neverending trackstand. Zzzzz.
The only two riding 29ers, John (new product manager) and JBK (product manager, angler).
Jose and our NOW Bar rep. They’re a cute couple and I wish them nothing but happiness.
JT (inside sales) and his Landshark. Very attractive “beer” paintjob but what’s up with your tattered, Robinson Crusoe bibs? Somebody get this man into some Crafts, stat!
Cleve (SRAM sales rep) listens to one of Tipper’s interminable stories about some spazzcore band he saw at a house party in Raleigh that was put on by the guy who invented Yoo Hoo but that guy’s youngest son, who drummed in another horrible spazzcore band from Wilmington, was like “no way am I some sort of Yoo Hoo coprorate pawn” so this guy in Greensboro who owned a boblsed repair shop and who played zither with Tipper in a klezmercore band in Carrboro, blah blah blah blah….
Tom (IT, software guy) rides past the police officers trying to “act natural”. This was forty seconds before the groin-tasering started.
Ian Cross: Wagster, how the heck are you? You still got that ant farm? Tony Wagster: You know, just checkin’ my fly paper to see what’s stickin, man.
Yup, that’s an old fashioned ugly kit you got there Clayton! No wait, it’s just the font. My mistake.
