Dear Mom / Boss / mom boss? Boss mom?
We’ll begin with a quote from Susan B. Anthony
“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel… the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”
Oh Susan, how beautifully you explain something that causes so much perplexity to the bike industry.
Every day we hear stories with titles like, “how can we make cycling better for women?” “How can we get more girls on bikes?” “Why are women afraid of bike stores?”
Mom – You and Susan cracked that code a LONG time ago. How lucky and blessed we have been to be three women in an undeniably male dominated business.
Bikes. Of all things, who would have thought?
Who would have thought bikes would be the reason we’d travel around the world?
Who would have thought bikes would be the reason we’d meet so many people who in turn would enrich our lives and make them full? And lastly, bikes. Who would have thought they would be such a vehicle for change? Locally in Miami, and globally.
What a blessing it’s been to use Mack Cycle to share our love of fun and fitness and time outdoors with mother nature.
To ourselves, and to you, and to anyone who might be listening. For whatever your question may be… we truly believe bikes are the answer. We’re going to save the world, and it will be while riding a bicycle.
Your two most lovable and stubborn employees & your not-so-little, little girls
Rachel and Sandy
We love you, mom.
