hi gang,

While perusing my stack of old Bicycling magazines, I came across an article entitled "The Bicycling Ernsts". It went on to describe a family that was heavily involved in the bike business, and in promoting cycling. The key figures in the article are Ted Ernst Sr. and Jr.

Well, the name sure sounded familiar, and a quick e-mail confirmed that the Ted Ernst Jr. mentioned was our own Ted that contributes to the CR list!

The article is now available on Mark Bulgier's site: http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Articles/

just scroll down to the entries for "The Bicycling Ernsts"

It's always nice to see a magazine show us how folks are promoting cycling, very much along the lines of Asphalt mag's "Watercarriers" series of articles. Much better than the usual "How to climb hills faster!" stuff. :-) Plus, it serves as a good example for those of us who've considered getting more involved in the local cycling scene.
