Bike Hugger reports from SXSW in Austin and runs into Susan Veal at a liquor store in the sleazy part of town.
Writes Byron of this photo:
Every year Susan Veal buys a bike at Walmart like this for $80.00 plus $15.00 for the basket. Rides it for 2 weeks and leaves it behind with a note on it that says, “free.”
Pay it forward, all.
sleazy part of town…? a lot of the newer and “hip” places in austin are rapidly gentrifying east austin. i’m guessing that’s where this is since i can see the highway in the background.
That’s how Byron described it anyway. I didn’t know Austin had any truly sleazy areas, but the last time I was there I may have been one of the sleazes.
pay it forward, y’all!
