As you know yesterday was Earth Day. On the way home from work I heard a segment on the radio talking about The Jones Soda company and how they took themselves off of the power grid yesterday by powering themselves via bike trainers hooked up to power generators. Had I known that I would have stopped by during the day to donate some of my spinning power to their cause. I guess it was just a bad case of timing on my part because they had invited the public to come down and ride with them in order to power their company for the day. Here were the details.
If you've ever had a Jones Soda before you know they make some pretty odd flavors but most of them are really good. In fact, during Thanksgiving they put out a turkey and gravy flavored soda. I haven't been brave enough to try it but I understand it tastes just like the real thing.
Next Earth Day I'm heading down to Jones Soda to offer up my spinning power for a couple of hours. I still don't think I'll be participating in the turkey and gravy soda drinking though.
Even though I missed the Jones Soda spinning challenge I'm determined to not miss out on the fatcyclist.com century to nowhere ride that is coming up. I'm even planning on posting a Dan Henry course marker in front of my bike so I don't get lost along the 100 mile course. If you're participating too feel free to download this picture and place it in front of you. That is if you're worried about getting lost.
