For the upcoming Scottsdale Cycling Festival (Sunday October 2nd) in Scottsdale, Arizona, we partnered with Research to Prevent Blindness to have an exhibition booth to raise awareness about blindness. We'd love to see/meet you if you're in the area.

For the event, we designed a banner that we'll have at our booth. In addition, we had business cards made to pass out at the event and during our ride.

Dale of 1offpowdercoating finished powder coating the bike and so came by this morning and dropped it off. A simple white that is a perfect canvas for signatures -- yes, we hope signatures of people who share our awareness initiative will fill the bike! We'll have the frame at the Scottsdale Cycling Festival for people to sign.

We spent the afternoon cleaning the tandem's bike parts. Immediately after the Scottsdale Cycling Festival (SCF), we'll reassemble the bike and start pedaling around town.

A week later, the banner arrives. We'll display this at the SCF.

A couple of days later, the cards arrive ...all 1,000 of them!
