At the Intersection of Lawnmower and Bicycle

This was forwarded by my nephew, Chris 'Beer Boy' Anderson, who's life title is something like Digital Media Marketing Mangler for the Toro company.

 A group of urban activists known as The Mower Gang have cleared the half-mile Detroit Velodrome track of weeds, beer cans, and other trash that kept bicycles away for decades. "It's really not about getting some 45-year-old guy a better place to ride his bike," said the Mower Gang's founder. "It's more about getting 10-, 12-, 13-year-old kids a better place to spend an afternoon.

Lawnmower, bicycle and good deed content! My question to Chris is, "Why are these people not using free Toro equipment? This is within your power. Use it."

MAN THAT IS SOOOOO COOL!

But all those 10-12-13 year old kids better stay outta my way.

I wonder why the 11 year olds are ostracized?

I'm cool with 11 year olds. They get it. It's them others that are the real trouble makers.
