On the 2nd Friday of each month is the Mobile Social. Yes, the skies opened up and we all got soaked this last time. But that didn’t stop a bar full of people from ending in Kirkwood.

The Mobile Social is also preparing for their big event that benefits the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. Join us on Saturday October 4th.

Community bike shops offer much more than low-cost repairs

You know you’re in the right place when you see the jumble of used bikes locked up out front. Inside, parts fill every corner of the room, tools explode from drawers and wooden pegs, and a line of rims dangles from the ceiling like the edge of a spiral notebook.

Whether in someone’s old garage or a fancy storefront downtown, your first time inside a bicycle co-op can be intimidating. But there are good reasons to push through your uncertainty and see what’s behind the sprocket-covered front door of your local collective shop.

Krank It Up

image

Passing through Tallahassee, FL; couldn’t pass up a chance to visit our bike co-op friends and former Bike Bike SE hosts Krank It Up. Unfortunately they were closed. I did talk to Russell and Jeff who were around. We talked bike culture, changes to the town, and the growing bike infrastructure.

Krank It Up is nicely located to a street that had a lot of bike traffic. In a college town, it was complete gridlock of cars. The quickest way anywhere on and around campus was by alternative transportation. There were already a lot of bikes being used because it’s a college campus and there is room to grow that number.

Wish we could have visited and stepped inside Krank It Up. We’ll see you next time.

SoPo High Five!
