This is our new space. It's only 1200 square feet, but it's a couple of blocks from historic downtown Annapolis. It'll be an atelier, gallery, showroom, or something. But it will not be a regular bike shop. Whatever it will be, it will be open, in some form, on the afternoon of April 15 and you're all invited to drop by for a glass of wine, snacks, and to either see some of our products or help us unload boxes, depending on how close to being finished we are. I'll post details and a map later.
Earlier that day you might want to attend The Ride for Shelter. It's a neat bike ride in Annapolis to raise money for the local homeless shelter. I was told this morning that I'd volunteered to run the swap meet. So bring all your old bikes and parts. We'll ask you to donate a small percentage of your take to the shelter. I'll post details on that too.
One of the reasons we live in Annapolis is that it's as close to a small European city as you'll find in the US. There are narrow brick streets, an old harbor, lots of cafes and restaurants, little B&Bs, artist's studios, many (almost) secret passageways between the streets, and even a couple of very old colleges. So you might make it a weekend and enjoy the place.
