Deal for derailleurs and dine on dogs at Southside Bike Swap Meet and Community Cookout

If you’ve got bicycle parts that aren’t attached to bicycles this Saturday you’ve got a chance to swap the parts for something you’ll actually use.

Outpost Richmond (4813 Forest Hill Ave) our local combo bike and grocery store is once again combining bicycles and food.

This Saturday from 11 AM to 4 PM they’re hosting the Southside Bicycle Swap Meet and Community Cookout. It’s free for vendors just shop at the parking lot, Saturday around 10:30 AM with the items you’re looking to swap. The number of vendors is equal to the amount that can be squeezed into the parking lot. They are asking that folks register for a space by emailing [email protected] If you forget to register you can still show up but the more information they have the better the shop can plan.

You’ll need a table and or chair if you want to use such modern niceties.

But it’s not just about bikes. Burgers and hot dogs will be provided to anyone that participates.

Looks to be a great local event that could help you upgrade your ride or unload all that gear that’s collecting dust in the garage.

Bridge Workers

Day after day hanging off, under, and all over a bridge has to be challenging work.

The work on Nickel Bridge continues. A sign of hope though, it looked like yesterday, when this picture was taken, that they were taking down the coverings. A better reporter/photographer would have asked these gentlemen how much longer. Unfortunately in this case I’m most definitely not your huckleberry. Officially work is scheduled to continue “through the fall”.

Bakery to Rise Up in Manchester

Spotted on Instagram and Facebook is news of Wildcraft Focaccia Company picking a spot to set up shop in Manchester. They describe themselves as naturally leavened, garden-to-table, sourdough and focaccia bakery. I look forward to trying them out. They don’t state it but I’m pretty sure the address will be 1303 Hull Street.

Here’s what they said on FB about their location.

It’s finally official – I found a space. It’s taken way longer than I ever expected – I worked on several properties and had months-long negotiations three separate times. Then there was the huge chunk of time when I didn’t even look for properties during the initial covid months, but finally, after almost a year of looking, I’ve landed in Manchester! My plan as of now is getting the keys on October 1st and likely taking three months to work on the space (it needs some TLC and some layout changes) Then opening in early January. Thanks for hanging with me during my “photo only” phase and please continue to keep me company during the build-out process! I’m looking forward to seeing you in person in 2021!
