Claire, Nicole, and Patton went down to the Fruita Fat Tire Festival this past weekend.   They demoed some Salsa 29ers and set up shop in downtown Fruita. Here are some pics from the weekend.

Borat loves Alchemist! This fan hung an Alchemist cowbell around his neck and strutted his stuff all over downtown Fruita. We couldn't be more proud.

Tis the Season for Winning and More Cowbell in the Denver Post

30 11 2010

Tis the Season

Last year we got beat out by Med/Surg.  The year before by Pharmacy.  We’ve been the bridesmaid two years in a row.   After winning the top podium spot 3 years ago, we haven’t been able to recapture the magic that brought home the gold since then.

The hospital food drive is a cutthroat exercise in gamesmanship and cunning strategy.  We won’t be beat this year.  The docs all pooled our collective stingy-ass cash contributions.  Plans for a last minute shopping spree by Melissa and Kandy at Save-A-Lot should seal the deal for the ER this year.  We hope.  It’s no longer the season of caring, or of giving.  Tis the season of winning.  Told Rachel in Pharmacy it’s on like Donkey Kong, so bring it on!

Check out the Denver PostMore Cowbell made the gift guide in the fitness section.  Big thanks to Kristen at the Post for including us.





Limited edition Dan Maes “Bike Share” available for pre-order

14 08 2010

Alchemist would once again like to thank Dan Maes for inspiring the two year old in all of us.  It’s something we’ve all been brainwashed to accept.  Sharing.  But no longer, right Danno?  We cyclists are all behind you on this one (laughing).  Sharing SUCKS!

“Bike Share” is now available for pre-order on the Alchemist site.   100% organic, ring-spun cotton.  Itch-Free, tagless label.  Phthalate-Free ink.   Plantable, seeded hang-tag.  Yadda, yadda, yadda.  Available in men’s and women’s.   Expected arrival date of Sept 21, 2010. For the folks who can’t squint hard enough to read the type, it goes like this: Bike Share is the Gateway to Sinister World Domination. “This is bigger than it looks on the surface . . .” -Dan “McCarthy” Maes.

This is a limited edition design.  When they’re gone, they’re gone.





Thank You Card and Dan Maes Wins Primary!

One more follow-up from the previous post “Cheating Death“.  I received a very nice card from his wife today.  On the front is a picture of him in a lake with his dog.  His wife tells me that he is nearly 100% back to normal, and he is back to enjoying regular life again.  Incredible.  When I first met him, he was ghost white, his pupils were fixed, and he didn’t have a pulse.  He was dead.  That is one tough hombre.  His wife is pretty darned tough too.

Check out the Alchemist Review in Boulder.me.  Written by Jennifer Roberts, who has a pretty sweet blog herself, www.rideboulderco.com.  It’s filled with effervescent prose about biking in Boulder.  She has nice style.

So I’m sure you all stayed up late last night, holding your breath, waiting for the outcome of the republican gubernatorial primary election results.  I’m please to announce that our good friend and bike advocate, Dan “McCarthy” Maes, won!  We’ll be rolling out the commemorative “Bike Share” T in a few weeks.  It will be a limited edition run, so tell all your friends to hop on the bandwagon cus it’s about to be all hitched up and gone.  Here is the final edit.
