In light of the recent events, is everyone OK? Are your family, friends, homes, towns, cars, bikes, etc. OK? Also, found this flyer via Twitter that suggests some organization to the riots.

Keep us updated. That is all.

No trouble in Sheffield yet. by hulver (2.00 / 0) #1 Tue Aug 09, 2011 at 08:54:10 AM EST
That flyer is one that did the rounds during some Student protests, which were organised. I don't think it's connected to the riots.

I hope all the London people are OK. Some of them have been quite quiet lately anyway.

They looted the bike shop by Herring (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue Aug 09, 2011 at 09:33:53 AM EST
But they haven't burned down my workplace yet.

I was going to take the boy to watch the racing at Crystal Palace tonight. I think I'll skip it.

who loots a bike shop?! by R343L (2.00 / 0) #10 Tue Aug 09, 2011 at 04:24:06 PM EST
You'd think you'd stick with easily carried things and bikes don't come to mind ... and parts don't seem like the kind of things most people would know how to sell (or realize the value of some of them).

By the way, my new Colnago C50 with Zipp 404 wheels looks the business...

As a member of the unemployed by Phage (2.00 / 0) #14 Wed Aug 10, 2011 at 09:02:26 AM EST
I can only say that the rural life is pretty idyllic right now.
However we all know what needs to be done.
