In a bit more than six months I'll be starting out on my bike trip around the world. I'll be leaving a lot behind; family, friends, Crystal Mountain, the Latona Tavern... and my bicycle shop.
My bike shop occupies a corner of my garage and it's where I spend a lot of time when I'm not on a tour or slaving away as a graphic designer. I spend hours on end in front of my computer creating corporate marketing material and when it gets to be too much, I retreat to my bicycle shop where there's always something Zen to do.
Sure, I'm looking forward to my next big adventure, but I sure will miss my little bike shop.
