A Copywriter’s Fan Letter

This copywriter has a new ride, Bicycle Blue. I bought Blue back in May, and we just finished our first 1,000 miles. During the week, Blue gets me to and from work. We also go out and play on weekends. Now, you may be wondering about that reference to work. Does this mean that I’ve…
