Happy New Year from FirstBIKE! We’re looking forward to a great 2013 and wishing you and yours the same! We’ve all been doing some thinking over the holidays and to get the New Year started on a positive note, we share this video with you from a thoughtful student named Jonathan Reed. The video offers this recommended viewing guidance, “A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite. This is only a 1 minute 44 second video and it is brilliant. Make sure you read as well as listen… Both forward and backward.” Watch it and enjoy here.
