|Carl from The Bike Project in Urbana, IL in the Shop|
After the show, I was talking to Carl who seemed to like the music, because that's what he was talking about, when the topic shifted to cycling. Pretty soon he was walking me downstairs to the Bike Project. Carl was passionate about the empowerment of people through the freedom of movement, specifically by bike. He and a whole host of other like minds created a bike shop that would not only provide affordable bikes, but also lend tools and skills to those who want to learn to fix their own bikes.
Harrisonburg, where I live, has a similar project run out of Our Community Place. Maybe every town should have one!
