I’ve been struggling on how to articulate what I feel about recent events and the ongoing struggles of many people in marginalized parts of our society. The folks at bikepacking.com have come closer than most.

If you can, please consider donating to a national or community-based nonprofit in your area. Here’s a list of groups we’re supporting:

  • Who can we donate to in the local area that will make a difference?

Well said from Cassie Daisy (Chris Daisy Zion Cyclery)

“A black square is not sufficient as any sort of permanent solution. My family has always tried to be politically active and involved in our local community. But I am going to push to do better. Local elections matter. Electing your local Sheriffs, Judges and Coroner matters.  Black lives matter. I will never let participating in a local, state or national slide again.”

Show Beer

Sierra Nevada Wild Little Thing Slightly Sour Ale

  • This slightly sour Wild Little Thing has just the right smack of tartness for serious refreshment, while guava, hibiscus and strawberry lend fruity-sweet depth and a bright pop of color.
  • 5.5%ABV
  • A mere 7-IBUs
Some precautionary remodeling at Everyday Cycles. Still open folks!
Unity in the neighborhood! The owner of this vacant store gave permission to do this mural. Got the photo from the Interwebs, not sure who to credit it to but if you know, let me know!
Tire spikes in the street. These are left over from police actions when they don’t clean up their mess!

Sven – My 2 cents? We get the government we deserve which is another way to say if you don’t like the status quo, do something about it; especially at the local level. This is what most directly affects you/us!

Tony mentioned JK’s water bottle, so here is a photo.

Black lives matter. Let’s get to work.

  1. Is there a way to contact Greg Smith via e-mail? I cannot find a contact e-mail anywhere. Have a question (about finding contact info for someone else!) and kind of at my wits end, hoping you might be able to help me!

  2. Read some Thomas Sowell. Transcend the emotion-charged narratives and listen to a man who searches for facts.
