Mia Birk IS a big deal!

Bicycle Colorado has hit a home run this year by having Mia Burk, open up their 2 day annual Bike Summit in Feb. I've gone to this even 2x and find it worth EVERY penny. If cycling is more than just a hobby for you than I STRONGLY recommend you attend this meeting but back to Mia Burk. Much like how I did my last set of books reviewed I had forgotten to include Mia's book to my list. I had procrastinated on this book review so much that it had fallen off of my radar and I procrastinated because great books like hers deserves for me to take time and really analyze it and do it justice.... and so I still have never done this. It's a great book!

[addition] Last year's summit made our 2011 stories of the year, #7 http://303cycling.com/colorado-top-cycling-stories-of-2011
