Wow. Of the several mentions I've received on AOA (thanks guys!) the links from this far exceed anything before. If you've had trouble with this restaurant coupon site, then we're partners in pain. If not, click the link above to see what the problem is.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
