In our first bike party of the decade, we are thinking about how far bicycles, and so many other things, have come since the so-called Roaring 20’s.
Oh, those were the days. A time of joyful partying all the time, when folks weren’t busy with racial violence and crushing striking unions.
So this Friday, feel free to dress like a cliche carefree partier from a century ago. Or perhaps you might feel more comfortable dressed as a suffragist voting for the first time, a neighborhood militia fighting back the Klan, or an original “redneck” mine worker at the battle of Blair Mountain.
