Just writing to share a brief bike story. I used live in Silverlake. The Bike Kitchen and Midnite Ridazz inspired me to get back on the bike in a serious way. I left LA and ended up in San Antonio about a year ago. I I tried to transplant that vibe as much as possible to SA.
We just had a huge (for SA) ride last month called the bike gang summit. There were a lot of first timers. People were into it. So, just wanted to give you all a shout and say thanks for getting people involved.
