Riders Ready, Watch the Lights!
I just watched the best film on the history of BMX this week. Talk about a torrent of memories. BMX is the reason I'm still entrenched in the bike lifestyle, the reason that Cars-R-Coffins exists.
Damn, Sam, it's been one month open down here at CRC HQ. And even though it was raining on my ride in this morning, and right now as I write this it is snowing, we are on the homestretch to springtime. Yesterday, BRose took the reins and opened the doors for me so that I could sleep in past 7 a.m. for the first time in over a month. (thank you, BRose). And what happened as a result? Our best day ever, tables packed all day, bike rack out front full of bikes. It's a beautiful thing. So I thank all of you for your continued support and patience as this thing evolves. In a few weeks when the weather warms up, we'll have the Garage door open, some sidewalk seating, and a whole lotta fun. Drop by when you're in the area. Thanks to Greg from Ft. Greene/Brooklyn for searching us out during his visit to Mpls. He recommends a film I've yet to see: "THE END OF SUBURBIA: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of The American Dream." Sounds pretty accurate.
