    On Friday, as we were winding down, John Doidge, of the Breezer transportation bicycle company,
    after a few weeks of our detailing for them what we would need to make their sponsorship a reality,
    agreed to make his ahead of the curve bike business a sponsor for a new Mayors' Ride leg we are
    adding this year. Napa to Sausalito to San Francisco at ! Yahoo and these guys are the real deal. Not only
    are they much connected to most all of the harder hitting bike activists in Marin County, but the
    bikes they produce are all about making the footprint all of us leave on the planet a far lighter
    one indeed.

    More as all of this fire unfolds but to show you what kind of impact they have, consider this news
    release that literally just came in from Larry Black of Mt Airy Bikes in College Park, Maryland!
    Larry is burning the midnight oil to get the Breezer message out there as well!
