RIP +Google+

Looking forward to the rollout of Google Tools without the Google+ component starting with +YouTube.

 
Google+, which was supposed to create a huge social network with a billion or more users, proved no match to Facebook or Twitter

What a find for bicycle parts, great bikes for sale and repair. Great concept of a bed & breakfast for bicycle enthusiasts. I did not try the cafe but the place is very quaint with lots of charm. I got some parts for my mountain bike and Rob hooked me up. Great spot!
