It was just under a year ago that I predicted that Morristown could be the new Portland based on Van Dessel moving into the old auto stereo place on Market Street. Well, it might take a little bit longer, because now they found a better deal on rent and are moving to Mendham. I’m really sorry to see them go, but I’m hoping they will become hugely successful and move back into town, maybe so successful they take off the mini dealership building, which seems to be up for rent now. I’m going to miss stopping in their shop and dumping a bunch of bike ideas on them and then quickly taking off. I’m pretty sure that kind of behavior really did not make them leave tho.
Also adios to Michael Schower, who might have been the first person I didn’t really know who posted a comment on this blog, who suddenly moved away when he got a new job; he did drop me an email bragging about all the bike commuters in his new town, so I’m trying to be happy for him. I do feel a little bit bad that I never awarded him an imaginary award like best dressed bike commuter, but I think he is ok with it now. Anyhow, thanks for hanging out in Morristown and always being nice about my emails trying to get you to a meeting. Good luck!
I found out some stuff about the progress of the bike racks this week, so maybe tomorrow I’ll fill you in. I’m trying to spread out the little bit of news I actually have, so I don’t have to put up more blingee pics of my bike.
Also, I haven’t forgotten about the pedal person of the week, which is now the occasional pedal person of the week. My camera is a bit broken right now, but I swear it will happen again. Honest.
