Wait a minute! That means someone's leaving. Someone we know and love. This can't be good.

Someone we knew and loved far more than Tim.

Gone. Left last year. And she didn't even say goodbye?

Now you need to sit back and think about who loves you back.

For those who are curious, Zanna moved to New York. She's still looking for a job, so if you know anyone there who might be hiring, I'm sure she'd be grateful.

Here's her goodbye:


The reason I’m sending out such a mass email is because I’m letting everyone know that I have resigned from my position with BikeArlington and will no longer be your point of contact. I am moving to New York City, and am very excited to start a new life in the Big Apple.

I wanted to say that I am so extremely thankful to have worked at BikeArlington because, on top of having the best job I could ever ask for, I have met more people in two years than I ever would have imagined, and everyone I met has had a positive impact on my life. There was never a dull moment during my time here and I will take everything I’ve learned with me on to my next adventure.

I wish everyone all the best in life and I hope that bicycling plays a part, no matter how small! Thanks for giving me the chance to speak to you or work with you on anything related to biking!

Story of my life. Just the other morning, my youngest wanted to watch My Little Pony instead of going on a bike ride with me. It's just a string of disappointments.

Ah hell, you havent even hit mid-life yet. Just wait till you are a dithering old geezer, sitting in a barber shop, kvetching about "the kids these days."

Oh, by the way, you did see where my ride went to yesterday (http://www.strava.com/activities/106359369), right?

I did that yesterday. And last month. And the month before that. And the month before that...

Career change in store?

Oh wait, that's not BAHQ. I don't know what's there. Urologist? Geriatrics center?

Oh, I get it.

Well, she did say goodbye to some of us.

The job posting says nothing about wearing crazy costumes or is that something implied for any Event & Outreach Coordinator gig?

"Must be able to chauffeur a large man in a dress around bike events, using only a BMX and a sidecar."

You wouldn't believe me if I told you that was Zanna's idea...

But seriously, it's a fun job!

Sounds positively misogynist. or just a little masochistic.

Doesn't work well with Dear, but I guess that's what I get for asking questions in a bike forum, haha.
