A THANK YOU NOTE TO THE PEDDLER ON THE PATH.
Thank you, Jaime Arrieta, for becoming the MVB (Most Valuable Barista) for all of cycling.
Thank you for rumbling your old, ‘60s mail truck / coffee bar across miles of dirt road to the middle of the desert to whip up coffee drinks, teas, fruit smoothies and food for us at all hours of the night and serving it to us at a price and attitude that’s better than the “S” word coffee cartel.
Thank you for holding onto our car keys when we go off on a ride on a local trail (yep, he does that) and having a stash of patch kits on hand, just in case.
Thanks for being a cyclist who’s there for cyclists with what cyclists really need:
Great caffeine and an even greater heart.
