AllModern 'Who..What...Why' Competition

Cozy Beehive is a unique cycling blog with its own niche. Although it is not as popular as some of the other ones on the web, I get readers from far and wide, all the way from Anchorage in Alaska to Porirua in New Zealand.

From small interactions on this blog, I have come to know that some of my readers are from reputed places such as MIT, U Cal, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and from a variety of cycling companies. Others are everyday people (like me) who love to bike and connect with like minded people across social media.

Thank you very much for reading. I'd still like to get to know you all, so I thought I'd ask you to chime in and tell a little about yourself while having a chance to win something special from AllModern. AllModern has a great selection of modern furniture and home accessories from many leading designers. Part of CSN Stores, All Modern is just one of over 260 retail sites that offer a diverse array of products from Herman Miller’s popular Aeron Chair to cookware by Rachael Ray. Now the following tells you how you can get involved and win :

All you have to do is tell me who you are, what you do and why you like to read my blog (if you'd like to tell me that I should try harder, that's absolutely welcome!). All the comments I receive below the post will be put in a sophisticated Bee gooey and a random winner will be selected by nature. The winner will have a chance to pick anything from AllModern in the $100.00 price range. This could include an office accessory, a lamp, some wall d├ęcor – anything that appeals to you. AllModern will collect your shipping information, email and phone number, place the order and pay to have it shipped to you.

While I come to know you folks through the exercise, one of you will have a chance to also win. So leave a comment! I'm taking a week or possibly more off from blogging so you have time until then to do this. To say the least, I'm looking forward to the interaction.

OK Ron. I'm not as exciting as Michael. I'm Jo Ann and live in Western New York, the current rain capital of the US (or at least so it seems when I'm on the bike). I work as a project manager/estimator (chief guesser) for an electrical contractor.

I read this blog because I know the author personally. I find it entertaining (except when you bash Lance), and am amazed at the depth you'll delve into on some topics. I also like that you've given me a knew perspective on rides in my area.

I'm from Long Island, NY and am a medical student. I like this blog, especially the interviews you did with David Gordon Wilson from MIT. I enjoy the funny stuff tooo, some of them make my cry with laughter. You have a special way with sarcastic writing!

Ron, thanks for the great blog!

OK, I'm engineering (& humanities) trained; teach learning skills in a polytechnic. Have been a cycling fanatic, racing (road) and commuting during a long spell in Japan - where it's really safe to cycle!

Build wheels, been doing this for 30 years - and have a preference for steel (yes, I know!) as a frame material. Favorite bike: Columbus Niobium frame, Dura Ace group & hubset. Ah! :-)

Currently live in Melbourne, Australia.

Hey Ron,
I’m John. I live in the Niagara Region of Ontario Canada. I’ve been cycling and racing since I was 15. No racing anymore but I still ride and/or run at least 5 times a week. I’ve traveled the world in search of the ultimate cycling utopia. So far you can’t beat Bourg D'Oisans France as best bang for the buck.
I’ve worked for many cycling related companies over the years. Veltec Sports/Concord, GT Bicycles and Leader Helmets to name a few. I’ve even wrenched for a few teams back in the 80’s. I currently own a bicycle shop selling mostly Trek, Gary Fisher and Giant with a few Euro road bikes here and there.
I enjoy your blog for its technical side and the humour. I hope you can top “The lore of the victory salute.”
Keep up the good work.

I'm another Michael and I live in Seattle. I enjoy riding bicycles of all kinds, track, mountain, road. I handle commercial aviation insurance for companies all over the world.

I came to your site due to a recommended link on another site. I keep coming back for a different point of view.

My name is David. I'm from the greater Buffalo area. I'm a graduate student at University at Buffalo. Also, I have a job as a counselor at a residential rehabilitation home.

I was introduced to Ron's passionate interest in cycling when he joined the University at Buffalo Cycling. Then I helped him find his first bike in America. Then I started reading his blog since I thought I should know more about engineering. I find this technical stuff to be an interesting break from the counseling-psychology studies that I do. I really liked that post on my own carbon fiber frame. The posts on helmets. Also, the post of victory salutes.
