R.I.P Bike + Book + Hatchet

I wrote a little something about Rivendell’s Bike + Book + Hatchet for The Radavist, urging people to visit this wonderful store before they closed, hopefully everyone made it!

The modest Bike + Book + Hatchet storefront is tucked away on Main Street and easy to miss mixed in among stores like Pottery Barn, Chanel, Neiman Marcus, etc. That being said, B+B+H stands out as definite departure from the otherwise cookie cutter shopping zone and chain restaurants that surround it. At the entrance a lengthy explanation sets the scene for what you can expect inside and gives the impression in no uncertain terms that not everyone in Walnut Creek gets it. I’m not surprised.

The Worldwide Swift Campout is Tomorrow!

Who’s ready for the GSC chapter of the Swift Industries Campout this weekend in LA!?!? We know we are! We’d like for everyone to meet at the bike shop on June 25th around 2 and we’ll be rolling out around 3. There will be short stops for food and maybe a drink while we meander to the base of the mountains. We’ll be then taking the Mt. Wilson Toll Road up to Henninger Flats for the night!!! There is a 3 1/2 mile dirt road up to the campground, so bring to bike you feel most comfortable riding off-road.
