Bike Jax Turns One

How appropriate that the first anniversary of Bike Jax falls on Friday the 13th. Just like your typical screaming infant at the Golden Corral. Bike Jax managed to get on some peoples nerves this past year. We have been accused of, "being unruly", "being too hard and opinionated concerning local politicians", "creating dissent among the cycling community", and of "not playing by the rules." And those were just some of the nicer emails I received. We must be doing something right.

The Senate cut the stimulus for Jax area bikes blogs, so we'll have to put the party on hold. Instead I thought It would be nice to just enjoy this little montage of the things we covered, places we went and people we met along the way.

Thank you all for a great year. Now get out and ride.

Nice video, BikeJax! So nice to see familiar faces. Anything planned for the first weekend of March? I'll be in town.

Happy one year anniversary, Matt -- you've had some great coverage over the past year, and your event was a real "out of the ballpark" success!

Here's to many more -- you are an asset to the cycling community in Jacksonville, and if you're ruffling politicians' feathers, you're doing your job with aplomb. Rock on!

Thanks Brian. It weird how fast these things become an accepted part of our everyday life. Tom over at JaxScene hit one a couple of weeks before me and I would have sworn that I had been reading it for years.

Word, I'll give you call about March.

Jack, I have already stated that you guys were a key influence on me starting BIke jax.
We would never have been as successful as are without the support and you in particular. Thank you.
