The Bike House

RID Cares: Wheels4ASDC | American Society for Deaf Children (Powered by Donorbox)

The Bike House has two amazing guests tonight. It never crossed my mind that some bicyclists might be deaf, and these two are making the entire cross country trip. They are kind (and cute!) and we are thrilled that they stopped here on their journey and even stopped by the house to meet us. RID is excited to team with Bike Across America participants Albert Blake and Conrad Baer (BBikeUSA) as they cycle across America to support and raise awareness for ASDC, our 2019 RID Cares recipient.When hearing parents learn their child is deaf, ASDC is where they go for ASL resources.

In the long term, cities may need to continue designing better solutions to accommodate bicyclists, but in the meantime: drivers could...

FML #20682243

Are any of you familiar with the website FML? Just a little bicycling humor for you from there: Today, whilst driving past a cyclist, I thought it would be funny to make him jump by blasting my horn right behind him and then driving off. I guess he thought it would be funny to catch me up, yank off my wing-mirror and hurl it through the open window, at my face. FML

The University community's first bike shop opened in 1896— owned and operated by Clement Bainbridge McKennie, a 4th generation Corner merchant. His great-grandfather was Clement Pynes McKennie who at 21-years old had founded not only the University Bookstore but Charlottesville's first newspaper as well, the Central Gazette (1820). The bike shop was located in the 1300-block of West Main Street, just beyond the railroad trestle (which was installed when the road was dug out beneath the railroad tracks in 1901). The new bike shop signaled a nationwide boom in cycling in the 1890s that had been made possible by invention of the "safety bike" in 1885. UVA students even formed the "University Wheel Club" in 1896.
