Thanks from a guy who really knows biking

Hi John and Tom,

I want to thank you for everything this weekend. I saw tons of people having a great time and businesses doing business. You guys have really started something.

Our group (around) 20 folks rode through the streets and to Bayfront Park. Ten of us had lunch at a restaurant and the check was over $300; the owner said that they normally would not have that kind of business on a Sunday until 5 pm or so.

I am writing an e-mail to Mayor Diaz. I am sure that the expense of the police will be a factor [in repeating the event]. Maybe there is a way to soften that impact.
