I thought the whole concept of “Leave no trace” or “pack out what you pack in” was just kind of understood in today’s world. You know, the whole thing about that goes along with Rule #3 “Assume personal responsibility…” There have been plenty of reminders to clean up after ourselves, like dragging a trash can into the Sumo pit and having public service announcements over the megaphone. Apparently that wasn’t enough.
Walter at “WALLY’S BICYCLE WORKS” has been getting complaints for some time now about the trash being left behind and the Sept. Bike Happening tipped the scales. Beer cans and cigarette butts were found over the neighbor’s fence. The top of the fence was damaged from sitting or climbing on it. And, well, chicken was found too. The neighbors are not happy, consequently neither is Walter.
So, no more sumo at Wally’s.
PLEASE DO NOT GO TO WALLY’S AFTER THE RIDE.
What does this mean? This means the Bike Happening changes again which is not entirely a bad thing. So expect something different this month.
Also, the next time you see Walter please thank him for almost a year of sumo at his shop.
