This is brilliant! It makes me think 'Hey. I have a bike, and I love to ride it. Why not combine the things I love and bring letters to people while also getting my 20 miles/day?!'. It certainly opens up a new and exciting door for home made stamps!

My letter writing has sort of fallen off recently, which makes me sad. I need to light the epistolary fire again. This was good inspiration, thanks for posting! Anyone have suggestions for putting the awesome back in my letter writing life?


This is simply fantastic. Sign me up anytime - I would love to have a guaranteed 15 mile bike ride every day! Netherland official post is delivered by bike also, I think....
To Jackie: new LWA stationary :D, old thrift store stationary, take a walk in a different neighborhood, do something you've always wanted to & haven't gotten around to it til now, getting on your bike.... endless inspirational options at your fingertips! Good luck!


Gina - thank you! one of my favorite topics for letters is to just write what im seeing or doing. a long ride through a new place would be good fodder for such a thing.

i also bought some greeting cards today - which i dont normally do - but i need to work my way back up to making my own envelopes and such. ease of access, as it were. but im on the rebound! thanks!
