Comment

Thanks to all of you, Hop in the Saddle is halfway to being funded! We appreciate each and every one of you.

But we are a long way from meeting our goal. We are looking for $7,500 of backing in 13 days! How can you help? Personally email a beer-loving, bike-riding friend or two to see if they are interested in pre-ordering a copy of Hop in the Saddle off Kickstarter...or even snagging a custom Queen Bee Creations beer pannier. 

In case you didn't see, we added a special reward this week. For $100, you get 10 signed copies of Hop in the Saddle. This reward is great for anyone wanting to sell or gift this book, including bike shops, breweries, hotels, bars and restaurants (except bookstores). 

Thanks again for supporting small businesses, independent publishing, bikes, beer and PDX! We are so excited you've joined the ride!
