When life is really good, everything else tends to go to the side. Such is the case with this blog, and to a lesser extent Zero Per Gallon. Considering I’ve recently received a few inquiries as to whether I’m still selling products, I figured it was time to update the ol’ blog.
First things first. Zero Per Gallon is still fully operational! Just because I haven’t been blogging doesn’t mean I’m not still shipping shirts. I have a responsibility to keep you clothed and witty, honorable cyclist. This is something I take terribly seriously, so as long as there are shirts to sell on the site, I’ll be shipping them.
Now that that’s out of the way, I’d like to explain my absence. Since my moving from the South Bay/Silicon Valley to San Francisco’s East Bay/Berkeley, I’ve gotten extremely preoccupied doing all things bikey with a crew of some of the best people I’ve ever met. We’re talking class A cyclists who are in it for exactly the reasons this company exists. That blissed out, grinning-like-a-fool experience that we all know and love so well. I’m riding amongst the folks behind MonkeyLectric, Rock The Bike and Xtracycle. I’ve been meeting frame builders working for big corporations, and I’ve been rolling two weekends a month with the Bay Area’s most exciting free social event: Bike Party. There is so much buzz around bikes right now, and I’m right in the middle of it.
So I’ve been social networking, but not much in the way of Facebook Pages or Twitter Feeds. Instead, I’ve been social networking the way I think we all prefer. On the road, with a few of my best friends, breathtaking views around every corner, and if we’re lucky, some good music.
So while Zero Per Gallon has taken a little bit of a back seat in recent months, I can assure you that what it stands for is being advocated every single day here in the Bay. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve this year that could make Zero Per Gallon a little bit bigger a dot on the map this year. But what’s most important to me is spreading how man’s greatest invention can change lives. How has it changed yours?
