And away we go…in the slow lane…to the A.N.T. Bike Open House - http://www.antbikemike.com/antbike%20party.html. As you can see, the leaves are turning color.
Ah! This must be the place.
We arrive to see folks gathered and milling about.
Bikes and people parts absorbing the warming sun.
A horde of hungry riders converge on and devour veggie Indian food.
Mike's wife, Betsy, and Jo Ellen. New BFFs.
Milling about outside the shop, we take in some of the bikes the guests brought for the ride.
Bikes lined up everywhere and a newbie getting a trike lesson.
The trike races are on!
After a tough loss in the trike race, time to practice technique.
Hipster track stands.
Lots of cool bikes—and gawkers, too.
Circle A was one of the many bike makers represented.
One of my favorites.
One recumbent present and accounted for. Unfortunately, he/she vamoosed before I could introduce myself.
Well, what can I say? Some people never grow up. And I mean that in a good way.
Either whimsy, or he read the study that says ladies get more passing room from autos.
Stem shifter alert!
This guy was guarding the shop. Looks a bit Bud Abbott, don't you think?
As we make our way into the shop open house, more of Mike's handiwork is on display.
This one was sitting out by the front door, begging for a ride.
That's the ticket! Start 'em young.
Cargo bike. That's what I'me talking about.
Cargo bike sticker.
Lots of cool machines to gawk at and study.
Inside the shop, it was a mass of people…a real scene.
Funky floor stand.
Bike in shop.
Mike holding court.
Mike set up these info cards around his shop. Great idea!
Preaching to the choir.
More cool machines.
A chat with the master.
Vinyl, much like steel, I hear is quite real.
Alright! Let's take a look inside.
And just how long did Mike think he could hide this beauty in the powder room?
Here's a few shots from the second floor window. I liked the view.
More shots from the open house.
Time to take off so I need a shot of myself to prove I was here. This is the only "strike pose" I could come up with. - THE END.
