Sendoff for John Brunow of bikes@vienna

John with Drew and Adam
Last night friends of John Brunow gathered at bikes@vienna, the shop John started in 1998, to bid him farewell. John, his wife Ces, their cat and Java the chocolate lab are moving to Jefferson, Iowa. Tim Fricker, head mechanic at bikes@vienna, will take over. In the photo at the left John posed with Adam, his first mechanic, and Drew, Adam's GMU classmate who was later hired as a mechanic. They now both work for SPOT Image.

FABB and the Friend of FABB Award
John has been a supporter of FABB from the very beginning. We held our first meeting at his store and continued to meet there every month for several years. He provided bike racks and the use of his van for several of our bike valet events. He loaned the van, tables, and chairs for the bike light giveaway. He started the Bike to Work Day event in Vienna and co-managed it for several years. He regularly donates bikes and cash to WABA. He donated U racks to the Town of Vienna and convinced the Vienna Rotary to purchase and install special Rotary bike racks around Vienna. The list goes on.

Jeff Palmer of Spokes, Etc. and John share a laugh.

We presented John with the first Friend of FABB Award. The award includes photos from John's many exploits, and we thanked him for his support. He'll be missed. To keep up with John's latest exploits, check out his Facebook page.
