I flew into Victoria last night and wanted to meet up with Sharon and some friends at Herman’s Jazz Club. I rode my fixed gear Bike Friday Tikit downtown so I could throw it into Sharon’s Mini for the drive home. The ride into town was fun. I sometimes forget how fast this bike can go when I’m in the mood to crank hard. I blew past everyone on the MUP and I’m sure I left a few wondering what in the heck I was riding. When I got to Herman’s I folded up the Tikit and rolled it inside. The place was nicely decorated and the crowd was busy listening to Amy Thiesen sing. I wasn’t sure where to leave the Tikit. As I hunted around for a good spot an older fellow [Herman??] came rushing over. I assumed he was going to give me grief for bringing a bike inside so I prepared my best I-don’t-have-a-lock-and-my-bike-is-clean-and-tiny-and-I-plan-on-spending-$$$-here story. But, before I could even start he shows me a handy little nook that was perfect for the Tikit and comments on my “cool bike”.
Herman’s Jazz Club is really nice and because they let me bring my folder inside I could enjoy a beer and the show without worrying about my bike locked outside.
Score another great Tikit moment!
