New arrivals for the week of April 14, 2009


Greetings everyone,

How about that Illinois Marathon?!?! Congratulations to everyone who ran and if you didn't, I hope you at least got to watch the big pack run by -- 9,500 participants. It was quite a sight. I'm all for events like this. Sure, it may shut down some roads and make it a bit difficult to get across town but it brings a ton of people to town, fills our restaurants, and, bottom line, it's tons of fun. This year will also be the inaugural Tour de Champaign Criterium Bicycle Race -- a two day race held in Downtown Champaign and around the I-Hotel. Mark it down in your calendar for July 11 and 12. Bike races are fun. Bring the whole family!

With Ebertfest just a week away I'm not sure if I should be in training by watching four movies a day and eating nothing but Polish sausages standing up or resting, watching no movies all and getting an overdose of carbs for the long weekend. Regardless, I'm getting excited about seeing all the movies -- even the just over three hours of Woodstock (if for no other reason than to see a much larger than life Jimi Hendrix tear through the Star-Spangled Banner).

The 23 members of the Illini 4000 for Cancer went on their second training ride last weekend -- 53 miles to Rantoul, Flatville, St Joseph and back home. They are riding really well and we had a lot of fun. There are just six more weekends before they head out for their 4,000 mile ride across the country. So far they have raised $20,000 towards a goal of $75,000 -- all to go towards supporting cancer causes. Check out their website (www.illini4000.org) for more information.

In case you missed it, Joel Gillespie wrote a nice article about our Itty Bitty Bike Shop on Smile Politely. Check it out:

That's it for now. Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
