Thanks to all my backers for your support and patience. The last of the rewards are have been assembled and shipped, except for my Geneva-based backers...most of you will have your shirts, prints, journals, patches, and bookmarks delivered in person in the next week or so.
The photo shows the dining room table at Bicycle Astronomy Mission Control, and all the goods laid out for organizing and packing. The final 16 rewards took about as much time to assemble as the previous 100 or so did!
Still to come (but soon): the rewards page at www.bicycleastronomy.com, and updates on the Veloscope design/build project. Meanwhile, I'll be taking the wintery weather as a sign to start laying the groundwork for a strong series of Bicycle Astronomy events in the new year. If all goes according to plan, I'll start working with the local Boys and Girl's Club after school program, and I'm also looking into working with the local schools on evening programming designed to bring parents and their children to school together, which is a huge key in actually helping improve our schools (don't get me started on standardized testing). And of course, I'll be doing more impromptu Bicycle Astronomy around Geneva. Though now that it looks like we have real winter again, it might be a little sparse until the thaw. Not that I'm complaining...I prefer my winter wintry.
Again, please send me a pic of you and your Bicycle Astronomy reward...I'd love to post it on the Backers page on bicycleastronomy.com And for those of you who don't yet follow, check out facebook.com/BicycleAstronomyWorkshop/
