What's going on, Albuquerque?
So excited to hear about the Community Bike Shop. I know that's something that Chuck Malagodi from Parks & Rec has been wanting to do for years; glad to see that the city has finally seen the wisdom of his vision.
I really like the idea of people being able to "earn" a bike through education. I hope it means that more cyclists in town will follow the rules; I really worry about all the people I see riding against traffic, on the sidewalks, or running stop signs and lights. Perhaps a bike-centric community resource like this can help educate people on the safest ways to operate their new mode of transportation.
Great news about the Gold Ave. studio rentals. The best thing for downtown is bringing in more residents.
FYI: The Community Bike Shop is actually the continuation of a project that was started by a gentleman who set it up on a volunteer basis years ago (and of course I have forgotten his name). He ran it out of the same building and had the same concept,but it was all volunteer-driven. We used to donate leftover stuff (unclaimed parts and bikes) from Bike Swap to him. He died suddenly three years ago and his bike shop foundered as a result. It is really great that the City has been able to re-start it and indeed it is Chuck Malagodi who has made it happen.
OBTS: The gentleman was Richard Rivas, and I think it was called the Albuquerque Bicycle Recycle Center or something wordy like that. Community Bike Shop is much better branding.
