Builda the Re-Bicycler Round-Up

Between the writing and the yardwork on today’s to-do list, I don’t have the time to write the Memorial Day post I’d like. So instead, I’m going to give a quick shout-out to all the reviewers who’ve written about Builda the Re-Bicycler for the iPad over this past month. (I can’t believe it’s been a month!)
