    All this and lovingthebike has only reached the lower inflection point of an exponential growth curve (or something).

    It has been a great year partnering with you, the @egggman and #bikeschoolers. I expect more secretevolplans in 2011.

    Great post but you forgot one. Changing the face of cycling culture by bringing out the best in people through the website.
    May the wind be at your back and the sun upon your face in 2011.

      If I had to make my pick for 2010 person of the year, it would be you my friend. Thanks for everything you’ve done and all you have given this year. Thank You.

    Nice summary. I feel like such a slacker.

      You’re not even close to a slacker. Your advocacy, cycling, and humour is incredible.
