This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Columbia Bicycles, but all my opinions are that of THE ROCK FATHER. #pmedia #RideColumbia http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

There is a rebirth taking place... With roots dating back to the 1877 opening of Boston's Pope Manufacturing company under the leadership of Colonel Albert Pope, America's first bicycles bore the name "Columbia," and were manufactured using pioneering techniques that would later win fans and adopters such as a cyclist by the name of Henry Ford. In fact, Columbia Bicycles once had a sister company in Pope Automobiles, a short-lived venture that while innovative at the time, would somewhat ironically be eclipsed by the Ford Motor Company, among others. While automotive aspirations didn't quite pan-out, the Columbia Bikes would amass a rich history, rolling on for well-over a century before slightly fading from the public eye, just waiting for the right time to re-emerge... now.

Operation HomefrontThis past Friday, I had the opportunity to attend a special event hosted by Country Music star Tim McGraw, Operation Homefront, and Outback Steakhouse. My duties as The Rock Father took precedence on Friday, so I had to take a pass - but what happened was a fantastic lunch at the Outback Steakhouse in Orland Park, Illinois (my old stomping grounds!) which is just outside of Chicago. McGraw (a member of a military family) spent some time with members of our Armed Forces and their families as a thank you for their service and dedication leading into Memorial Day. Check out some video from the event below...
