Windows Busted Out at Crossroads and Coqui Cyclery
The windows were broken on Friday night, no other damage was reported. The blow is especially harsh for Crossroads as they’ve been closed for months due to Covid-19 so zero income. The Crossroads GoFundMe is still active if you care to donate. I haven’t seen any donation effort for Coqui Cyclery but if one pops up I’ll add it here. Coqui was open for business the next day and is still there for all your biking needs.
