Welcome to April Fools day and the start of our Official Cycling Season here at IGotABike! It has been a particularly snowy and bitter cold winter and Guy and I are both really excited about the upcoming bicycle season. The bikes are just about ready to ride, and we are more than ready, but we are waiting on the weather. There is still snow and ice on the ground the wind is not cooperating.
Last year was fantastic. We logged over two thousand miles and toured in two states. We were able to ride the entire Ohio to Erie Trail (round trip) and broke new routes into Indiana. We explored the Wabash Cannonball Trail in western Ohio and created a four day loop using the Western Reserve Greenway in eastern Ohio.
It was a big year for I Got A Bike when we achieved our dream to publish an interactive trail guide for the Ohio To Erie Trail. Sales have been strong and steady and we won a Ruby Award from The Ohio Travel Association. We have had incredible feedback from people who purchased the guide and have many new friends as a result. We have received dozens of e-mails from folks who will be touring on the Ohio To Erie Trail this year. We hope they all keep in touch so we can share their stories.
We have had tens of thousands of hits on our website, launched an IGotABike Facebook page, a Twitter account, were featured in The Cleveland Plain Dealer Travel section and interviewed on the Outspoken Cyclist radio show.
If that’s not enough for one year — how about my dream job of designing the first ever printed map for the Ohio To Erie Trail Fund! Wow, that was a ton of work but I feel so blessed to have been in the right place at the right time to get such an outstanding opportunity.
2013 was over the top and we have some humungous goals for 2014. Thanks to all of you who have been so supportive of our efforts. Happy trails and tailwinds!
