I got this shot while flying by this poor scooter, and although it’s blurry, I trust that all who ride and park their bikes in NYC know this dreadful scene.

I guess we should be happy that we haven’t had a driving NEED to use the bike lift yet – since this would imply that our bikes were in a state of disrepair. But man, we were dying to use it! Last night, for the first time, a bike went up on the new lift….

Well, after a ton of work, and a lot of sweat, the garage is now open. There are still many things to be tweaked, but the gear is in, the benches are built, and the first few spaces have been claimed by riders.
