Thanks for a Great 2013 50 States and 13 Colonies Ride!
Peter from Stonebrown Design, who designed the brand-new 50 States T-shirt riders received. If you liked the design, consider picking up Stonebrown’s rad “United Streets of America” poster print, which inspired the shirt.
Riley from ESP Sound, whose equipment enabled us to get directions out to riders ta the beginning of the day loudly and clearly.
Drink More Water, a local water delivery service that supports biking for transportation. If you’re in need of a water-delivery service for your home or office, consider Drink More Water, which we can vouch for as a bike-friendly business: It keeps our riders happy and hydrated at our many events, including 50 States.
Giant Food, which donated the fresh fruit at the pit stops.
KIND Healthy Snacks, which not only backs our #bikeKINDly campaign, but kicked in hundreds of flavorful bars for 50 States.
Zipcar, which sponsored the American University pit stop and made it super-easy for us to borrow a Zipvan for necessary supplies transportation.
ProGold Lubricants, which donated bike-chain lube and frame-cleaning towels for riders to snag at the afterparty—a necessary element, given the weather!
All our local bike shop friends who sponsored pit stops and provided bike help and maintenance to our riders: Capitol Hill Bikes at Eastern Market (it’s not stocking Masi bikes, so stop by and maybe find a new ride!); VeloCity Co-Op in Anacostia (it’s pairing up with WABA’s Women & Bicycles program for a VeloCity Ladies’ Night next month!); the Bike House in Takoma (it’s contributed a huge amount of support to our east of the river mobile bike clinics this summer), District Hardware’s Bike Shop at the ride start, and the American University Cycling Team at the AU pit stop.
We couldn’t have pulled off the 2013 50 States and 13 Colonies ride without you! We’ll see you next year.
