At Atlanta Streets Alive
Discovered this through some place or another.
One of the frames stripped down for SoPo’s upcoming Art Bikes Benefit.
This frame has memories. The frame is from SoPo. The original paint was stripped off. It was repainted red with 2 tone candy stripe forks. It was a commuter for a while. Used as a bike example for the IRC and a bike safety class.
You can see the original paint at the top of the fork. It was a blue and gold speck frame.
Now it’s going to get a second art life with Art Bikes. A rolling work of art.
The shop will be closed on Saturday May 11th. The SoPo crew will be out at New Belgium Brewing’s Tour de Fat.
We are inviting everyone to come out and ride in the parade, which starts at 11 AM, and stick around for food, beer and live music all afternoon.
You can also volunteer with us, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I found the following from our friends at Urban Velo. What stuck out for me was the following…
What can you do to help your follow cyclists? Watch their backs. Be a witness. Offer aid to those in need. If you see a cyclist stopped on the side of the road ask if they are okay. Offer them use of your tools, or pump. Join an online forum and participate constructively in discussion and debate. Bicycling is not inherently dangerous, but in the city streets a network of aid can be tremendously helpful. Be a part of that network. Join the community, and lend your voice to other bicyclists in proclaiming the popular rallying cry of today, We Are Legion!
