Bike Month 2011 : open mouth, insert gold-certified foot

bike month logo

I came within a hair’s breadth of colliding with another cyclist this morning so it must be National Bike Month (sorry, lady cyclist on the sidewalk outside of Spring Grove–I promise to look both ways when crossing the sidewalk in the future and also to tighten my brakes).   The Mercantile Library has received a GOLD certification from Queen City Bike’s Bike Friendly Destinations program.   In celebration, and because we’ve gone and bragged about it, we’re offering a special human-powered promotion for the month of May:  free book delivery by bike to Mercantile members within 5 miles of the library*.  Seriously!  Simply call or email us and mention this offer by name and the next time it actually stops raining for a couple of hours, presto!  A Mercantile Library Cyclist will bring the requested items to your doorstep.  Oh, and be sure to keep abreast of Queen City Bike’s busy Bike Month Schedule of events.   -Ed Scripsi

*Certain conditions apply: Cyclists may arrive somewhat sweaty and dishelveled.  Limit 5lbs of books per customer.  Cyclists are unable to pick up pizza, booze, or groceries for you on their way to deliver your books.  Also, delivery may be delayed due to inclement weather, steep hills, Mercantile events, inherent grouchiness (on the part of both delivery person and or recipients), bad traffic, solar flares, and or whimsy.  However we really do want to deliver some books by bike, and will give it our best effort.  Distance refers to distance by bike route–we are not, nor have we ever been, crows.  Delivery personnel reserve the right to refuse to deliver books that they consider not actually worth reading or to replace them with worthier, more wholesome literature, but realistically, this probably won’t happen to you, as you are no doubt going to request only quality literature.
