100 San Francisco Bike to Work Banner Messenger Bags, Get 1 before May 12

With all the preparations before my flight to San Francisco for Hospice du Rhone on Thursday, I thought I had missed Bike to Work Day 2011 when message from Timbuk 2 rolled in announcing their limited edition San Francisco Bike to Work Banner Messenger bag.

Only 100 were made from recycled banners from previous events.

Off the $100 price tag, $50 goes to the San Francisco Bike Coalition.


I did not miss Bike to Work Day 2011 by the way.

In San Francisco, Bike to Work Day 2011 is on Thursday, May 12.

Check Program for Details.

I could use a bag for my new laptop.

Should I collect banners from Hospice du Rhone 2011 on Sunday morning and drop them at Timbuk 2 door before boarding my return flight for my own special edition carry on?

One can dream.

P.S: I don't know if it's a coincidence with May being National Bike Month in the U.S yet I have noticed a number of bicycle themed books in the upcoming titles list of various publishers.

(* For full disclosure, I don't own a Timbuk 2 bag, this is not an ad, just a nod to a neat creation)

On a brief Twitter visit, I noticed that slow man Carl Honore was on his way to Paris where he will be lifting the curtain on Foire de Paris 2011 which decided to take it slow. Event director Marie-Josee Prost writes that with everything from transports to life being more faster, they decided to revamp Foire de Paris and offer spaces to visitors where they can rethink their living quarters, open themselves to the world...
