is this a mano-a-mano contest? or do you have to buy for the whole group if you drive?

just wondering...

Cornbread said...

You gotta buy beer for every participant if you drive. Driving just got more expensive. :)

I've rode everyday this month to work. It's only 1.6 miles one way...but I usually get about 10 a day going to lunch, the store, etc.

Here's the wonderbike pledge, same sorta deal but in a clever marketing way for beer.

They're wimps though, you only have to pleadge to ride to work once a month.

Once a month? Damn, that's weak.
