PARK(ing) Day 2014

One of our favorite days of the year, Park(ing) Day! This is an international movement to reclaim parking spaces in the name of public space, art, and community. Temporary parklets were set up all over the city.

Here on 7th street we once again installed a lounge outside our shop, complete with Phil's church pew, paintings by our mechanic Bernie, and of course cookies and lemonade. It's amazing what you can fit in a single space.

Did you make it to any other parklets in the city? Share your #parkingday photos with us on our instagram

The Long Hard Climb

This week at Interbike we heard an inspiring talk by the legendary NBA player Bill Walton, who cites his bike as a crucial component to his recovery. "My bike is my gym, my church, and my wheelchair," explains Walton, who has undergone 37 orthopedic surgeries. The 6'11' star of the record-setting UCLA Bruins and Portland Trailblazers turned to his bike because the low-impact form of exercise allowed him to stay active, despite decades of debilitating injuries. The bike not only provides obvious physical benefits, but equally important emotional and psychological relief. He's extremely grateful to be riding his 72cm frame up the mountains of his home state of California. When talking about his journey, Walton describes his return to an active life as "a long, hard climb."
