This story is from my home. It’s made by local filmmaker LA Alfonso and narrated by Tegan Moss, executive director at B!KE, the community bike shop in Peterborough. It tells a story I didn’t know, even as a B!KE volunteer—the story of how a mural came to be painted on the brick wall in the back alley behind B!KE. It’s not a remarkable story but… it is. It’s remarkable for how it illuminates the magic of community bike shops. These simple stories are being told thousands of times over in thousands of communities and they all contribute to empowering cyclists.
Community bike shops. They give you wings.
