Got your 2011 calendar yet? Bikes and benefits

There are a couple of great, local bicycling-themed calendars available again for 2011.

For the third year, Thought You Knew, is offering bicycling pin-up calendars that benefit the Chicago Women’s Health Center. Choose ladies or gents versions featuring local cyclists in fun, themed photo shoots. This year’s sets, styling and photos are works of art.

Or you may be interested in the Chicago Bikes calendar featuring beautiful photography of local bikes and bicyclists. Proceeds from this calendar will benefit the Chicago Ride of Silence.

So, be on time for your appointments with cool bike calendars that do good.

PS: The Thought You Knew is hosting a fundraiser Thursday night at the Empty Bottle with the famous Goldprints, bands and beer…(wish I could still stay out late).
