Bike Law 2015 National Tour

September 4 – 19, 2015.  The Bike Law National Tour.

For two weeks, Bob, Timmy, and I are loading up the cargo bikes in our Sprinter van and visiting (and picking up) Bike Law lawyers from Charleston to Denver and back.  In each city, we are throwing a party, visiting shops, buying beer, joining rides or creating our own, giving away limited edition swag, and generally having a blast.

Here’s Eileen Sheridan setting the mood:
