[EDITOR'S NOTE: Least we forget the thrill that comes with a new bike, Bike Friday owner Fred Time recently sent us this note:] OMG !!! After a two-day delay in arrival, my beautiful Green Bike Friday arrived. I almost drove my wife, June, crazy waiting at the door and constantly calling Fed Ex about the delay. Once a Fed Ex truck slowed down in front of my house, and when I ran out in the yard it sped away. This created much laughter from my wife and the next door neighbor. Finally on arrival, I dragged the box, gently, into the room and began ripping the box open Once its beautiful green frame appeared a sense of relief and pride came over me. I spent the rest of the day putting it together. I was pleasantly surprised how much I remembered from all of my overseas trips putting it together after arriving at a foreign airport. I reminisced riding out of the airport into a foreign city on my way to a bicycle adventure. I can't begin to thank you all for making my biking dreams reappear, and for making my 80th birthday one I shall always cherish. Love, Fred Time
