HI! John here. You may know me from such games, comics and pastimes as MUNCHKIN, APPLES TO APPLES, DORK TOWER, DR. BLINK: SUPERHERO SHRINK, and TRYING TO DO SOMETHING UTTERLY CRAZY, LIKE BIKING 70 MILES IN ONE DAY.
 
Bike the Barns raises critical funds to support the Coalition’s Partner Shares Program, which brings fresh, healthy food from local farms to low-income families in our community. Please pledge your support, if you can! Every little bit helps.   
 
WAIT! THERE'S MORE! Not ony is this is a great cause. And not only will I be CYCLING SEVENTY FREAKING MILES IN A DAY to support it. But
 
(1) Steve Jackson Games has officially given me the go-ahead to do this: everybody who pledges $10 or more can start their next game of Munchkin at LEVEL THREE! Monday after the race, I'll make up certificates, and all you need do is drop me an e-mail for yours!
 
(2) Because we've already passed $2,000 in pledges, everybody gets a free downloadable coloring book, full of very geeky tdrawings I did for my daughter. Including Cthulhu, trick-or-treating. This will be set up with Drive Thru Comics soon after the ride.
 
(3) And here's the good part. If my pledge level passes $3,000 before the ride...I will ride the entire 70 miles with a Steve Jackson Games plush Duck of Doom strapped to my helmet.
 
That's right. A DUCK OF FREAKING DOOM. One of these: http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/duckofdoom/
 
Hence - for me, anyway - "Tour De Duck."
 
The cycling is gonna be tough, the duck will be...well. not heavy. But certainly embarassing. Yet the pledging will be easy! Please support my insane ride and the great cause behind it!
 
Any donation helps! Any at all. And if you've ever enjoyed my comics online - which are free, and always will be, think of this as a "Tip Jar" that goes to folks who could really use the help.
 
Thank you so much for your time and your support of local farms, food and families!
