Hello, dear backers! And happy Thanksgiving to those of you still in a food coma from yesterday!
The last month has brought some interesting developments for your cookbook writers--and in turn for your cookbook. As we've been developing the Pedal Inn Weekender and considering ways to make it beautiful, efficient, and universally usable for all our backers from SF to Australia, it's become something of a headline act--far from the simple aside we'd once imagined. We've even recruited another creative mind--graphic designer Abe Bingham--to help turn our content into pro-quality print and digital products for you.
Your Weekender will now include more than half our total cookbook recipes on modular full-color recipe cards, all bundled up in tour-worthy vinyl sleeves. It's taken some extra time and resources, but *wow* it's turning out to be so worth it.
All this to say, your Weekender, with more than 25 bike-camp-tested recipes will be on it's way to you in no time. If you were planning to give the Pedal Inn Cookbook as a Christmas gift, this now-headline act will surely please your bike-loving friends or family. The full-on Pedal Inn cookbook, too, is benefiting from some additional design and content attention, so our print deadline on this end-product is moving into post-Christmas-land.
We REALLY hate to keep you waiting; AND we also want to deliver a product worth waiting for. Our ultimate objective is to send you a bike-camping resource that is beautiful and useful and yields reliably satisfying results. And *wow again,* getting these recipes just right (without losing our day jobs) takes a lot more time than we ever imagined!
We'll keep you posted, but expect to see the expanded e-version of the Weekender by Dec 5, and the print version by Dec 17.
Thanks again for your support--and patience!
Nick + Lindy
