Hello from Colorado Springs, CO USA
Hello HUBB Riders:
This is Chuck, checking in from Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA where a riding buddy and I have started a new "community house" for riders.
Adventure Headquarters Community House is a labor of love, housed in a funky shop space that serves as gathering place for riders, fostering community among dual-sport motorcyclists in Colorado. Eventually it will serve as a meeting spot for rides, DIY bike wrenching, tech days, adventure planning, and a place to hold talks, demonstrations, and workshops. We also provide a place for out-of-town adventurers to plan trips and leave cars and trailers so that they can tour Colorado on motorcycle.
We don't accept money, but operate on a barter/co-op/pay-it-forward system. Right now we're accepting tool donations so that we can outfit a public "shop" area. We also strongly suggest that riders who use our services make donations to organizations that promote access for motorcycles to public lands and trail maintenance in Colorado.
We're just getting rolling -- our kick-off event is May 9, 2009 when we'll be hosting a Book Signing and Talk by Lois Pryce of Lois on the Loose fame! All are welcome, so if you find yourself in the area, please stop by.
I'll post up more details about Lois's visit as soon as I figure out where to put the event notice on the HUBB web site.
We'll that's it for now. See you 'round.
