My bike goes hard, don't need no car!



Next Saturday the Scraper Bike crew will be leading a "healin from killin, bike ride for peace" called Bike 4 Life in Oakland. If I hadn't already paid to be in a conflicting event, I would be there for sure. Tyrone Stevenson and his cohorts are promoting riding and bicycle decorating as positive activities for the teens in his neighborhood. I had a chance to speak to Tyrone at Maker Faire this year and found him to be friendly and cheerful. He is a leader for cycling-enabled change in his tough community. MacArthur Fellowship nomination committee, consider Tyrone!
