This is Mark. I first met Mark last week on the Tour De Brews (which I will blog about soon) On his commute to work, he discovered the bridge opening and then breakfast!
Officer Mansell (no relation to Q) We love it when the bike police come by. I know them all and are always glad to see them.
A bike tourist from Florida. He goes around biking different cities and had high accolades for Chattanooga as a biking city. He said the people are especially friendly. I wonder if having a bunch of strangers inviting him to breakfast contributed to that impression?
Encouraged by our interest in what kind a gear an experienced tourer carries, he brings out packable sling.
