Summary of this article: 35 year old cyclist rides eastbound on Macarthur Boulevard in East Oakland when a 42 year old motorist opened her door directly into the cyclist, knocking the cyclist in the path of an AC Transit Line NX bus.
Video by California Is A Place. Props to my friend Kit, who writes, “Never underestimate the power of good people with a passion for the bicycle. Even in East Oakland. Especially in East Oakland.” This video is good stuff, and I’ve met the Scraper Bike King Baby Champ and he’s good people.
This kid has heart. Champ Stevenson started promoting Scraper Bikes in Oakland when he was still a teen and is still going strong with it.
How long before we see Mormon missionaries on Scraper Bikes?
