BIKE BLOGGERS / FLOGGERS
On an extremely positive note, MIKE GREEN of BIKE BLOG got his bike back!
Yes, after enduring the friendly, cowardly / not so friendly comments after MIKE told the public how he was conned out of his bike in the East Village,
Mike's public humiliation, not only helped PREVENT FUTURE SCAMS, but the BIKE COMMUNITY rallied together and spotted, rescued, and returned MIKE's Bike, all while he was out of the country,,,
SO its a long story, read more about it at: BIKE BLOG
in the meantime, MIKE n XRIS attended the BIKE FILM FEST kick off party, where they helped underaged people sneak in, drank free PBR's, and mike got a chance to meet / thank one of his vigilante bike rescuers...
feelin' the love from one of the "Vigilante Bike Rescuers",
The Bike Angel demonstrated to Mike how he used a device called a "cell" "phone" to gather the posse that eventually re-obtained the bike,
he then told Mike that he shouldn't let complete strangers, especially those wearing Biggie Smalls shirts, 'borrow' his $1000 dollar track bike... Mike appeared to now understand
They then all laughed at the misguided CAR SERVICE cars (waiting for the 'clubbers' to come out needing rides)
, and got psyched for friday's critical mass, which is rumored to have a certain REVEREND whose name rhymes with "PAL" speaking and riding, and everyone planned to see a film*** shot by lil ole XRIS himself
( ***"GET FASTER" part of the SAT night BIKE FILM FEST program 7,9,11pm etc)
