Get Your Free Bike to Work Day Portrait Taken by the Pros

I’d like to give a plug to our bicycle-riding friends at Orange Photography, who are graciously offering free portraits of bicyclists for Bike to Work Day tomorrow:

We’re always psyched about it since 80 percent of our studio bikes or takes
alternate forms of transit and we’re right down the street from Mike’s Bikes
too. We’re offering free portraits for bicyclists and their bikes this
day.  Just stop by the studio and bring your bike up and we’ll take
your portraits.  This will be happening all day so you don’t have to do
it just during your commute (10am-7pm).

Another plus: It’s on a bicycle route. And the Orange photographers are pretty talented. Get my portrait taken by the pros? I’m there!
