Good news, good vibes, good bike rides

It has been forever since we last posted, things have been very busy in the shop. Even with the passing of the students fee, which means Aggie Blue Bikes is here forever, we haven't stopped running to keep up with the demand that the we are seeing for our time (not to brag or anything). It seems that with all the advertising and press we have received our usage doubled what it was for all of last spring semester is just early March. We are seeing our numbers climb and this makes us happier than a Tour De France winner. Bikes check-out is steady and even with the frigged weather people are still in wrenching away on their bikes.
Educational classes are also going well. Ladies Night is a hit and we would love to see more ladies in the shop for April's Ladies Night class.
Next week is our Bike Movie Night. We are showing the cycling classic "Breaking Away". Breaking Away is a 1979 coming of age film that tells the story of four teenagers in Bloomington, Indiana who have graduated from high school and are not sure what they want to do with their lives, other than hang out and go swimming in an abandoned limestone quarry. It won the 1979 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
The movie is showing April 2 in our shop between the military science building and the Field House at 7pm. Bring a friend, room mate, significant other, or your bike. Hope to see you all there!
