Rebecca is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
She’ll be racing in the St. Anthony’s Olympic Triathlon in April with Team in Training.
Tonight at Galapogos, come to the goldsprints event and help out.
It is also part of the Monster Track 10 qualifying series for goldsprints.
Come out for a good cause and see how you hammer it out on the indoor bike.
Gothamist reported this story of a recent Macy’s display…”My Funny Valentine.” ha ha ha hahahah. People being killed on the streets by motor vechiles…how funny.
Elina Kazan, director of marketing for Macy’s, had this explanation, in response to a spokesperson for Ghostbikes drawing a comparison to the display: “Bicycles are not a new element in visual presentations especially during the spring season. The spray painted bicycle your reader is referring to is one of many elements that make up our current visual display in store and in the windows that have been painted white. Our spring campaign showcases scenes of the season via color blocking, in this instance white. Unfortunately, your reader is drawing an unintended association from a visual display in our store.”
Yeah how could anyone draw a comparison…that Macy’s display doesn’t look anything like a ghost bike.
Thanks to Kalim Armstrong who brought this to my attention. Kalim is a film maker who made the movie: Orange bikes take Manhattan at last years bicycle film festival. Here is an HD version of the film.
