Tuesday night, I traveled to Rowlett to watch Querencia accept a tool grant from DORBA. DORBA awarded 4 tool sets with stands and pumps to qualifying nonprofits, including Querencia and the West Dallas Bike Co-op.
It’s great to see cultural overlap between community bike initiatives and mountain biking enthusiasm, because in the end, we all want the same thing: more people riding bikes.
People cross over from recreational to practical riding and the other way around. I went from commuting to mountain biking, back to commuting, back to more mountain biking, and it all felt related (even when the social spheres didn’t overlap as much as now). Props to DORBA for doing this grant series; it’s a great connector idea, and I look forward to seeing even more crossover in years to come. In the meantime, I think I’ll take the A-train down to Dallas to visit the West Dallas Bike Co-op.
