PKR Update. Five weeks out.

A quick run through of where we are at the moment.

Invitations are printed. 150+ are going out this week. Printing and mailing that many invitations gets pricey, so this year we set up a cutoff system. We go back three years, and then mail to those who have registered and showed up during that time period (11, 12, & 13 this year) with a few exceptions. In other words, if you want a printed invitation, you need to show up. Otherwise, you are invited by default. Unless you're an asshole. If that's the case, please stay home.

Sponsors. Once again, our sponsors are incredible. We receive great support from individuals and companies inside the bike industry and out. Please check out our sponsor page and buy their stuff. More on that soon.

Gear. Still in process. Should have mock-ups and pricing in a week or so. Stay tuned.

GOBA and the PKR. The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure starts in Mansfield this year, which means there will be a shit-ton of bikey people in and around our territory on the day of the PKR. As far as we're concerned, it's business and usual. However...

Opening ceremonies are in downtown Mansfield Saturday evening / night. Costumed bike parade, bands, newly-opened Phoenix Brewery, food, bikes everywhere... it's our kinda party. Management has decided to extend the day's festivities and move the party downtown after we are done at our place. The air-conditioned PKR Luxury Loge will be at Richland Source offices, which are about two miles from my house. Should be an easy commute, unless this happens.
