Let’s Go Ride a Bike 2011 Year in Review

[Ed note:  We found this draft in the archives, which we were tweaking so much, we forgot to finalize and publish.  Better late than never!]

Holy crap it’s 2012. We’ve had an eventful year over at Let’s Go Ride a Bike.

Travel

Dottie visited Nashville in April to celebrate Trisha’s birthday and photograph her new Abici.

We went to NYC together and organized a social at Adeline Adeline.

Dottie B-cycled in Denver and toured breweries by bike in Fort Collins.

Trisha visited  Chicago for Dottie’s 30th birthday bash, and again the next month to try out the Chicago bike commuting lifestyle.

 EventsThe 2nd Annual LGRAB Summer Games!Trisha started a brunch for Nashville cyclists—we meet on the second Sunday of every month. Cruising to brunch in Nashville

Twelve Women-Who-Bike brunches happened in Chicago, on the first Sunday of every month.

LGRAB friend Ash of One Less Minivan organized monthly Critical Lass rides, which Dottie joined, beginning with the first in May.

Sara and Dottie organized a Cupcake Ride of select Chicago bakeries, ending with a rose garden picnic.

Dottie also joined in on a Seersucker Ride.

We both checked out the Tour de Fat festivals in our respective cities of Nashville and Chicago.

Beyond the Written Word

We started a podcast series and have posted three interviews on our iTunes page: with the men of Grid Chicago, the women of West Town Bikes, and Trisha and Dottie of LGRAB. :)

Trisha added Kermit Allegra to her bicycle stable.

We also continued our videos via our YouTube page and posted several this year: riding Chicago’s first protected bike lane, a busy Chicago commute, a calm Chicago commute, Chicago’s second protected bike lane, and a ride along the Lakefront Trail.

Cheers to another year of happy bike rides, friendship and fun! We can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store.
