Movie Star in a Sweatsuit

June 12, 2012

in Press

Rob Kristoff wrote a really nice piece about the Ride Studio Cafe.  Rob does a great job of describing the cultural hub that the Studio is striving to be.  From the way he writes about the Studio, it sounds like RSC is having some success with working toward being a cycling hub – and a home for riders.

Here are a few excerpts from Rob’s article.

Thank you Rob!

I’m browsing  Privateer  magazine.  This is one of the few places on the East Coast to carry copies.  Maybe the only one.  […]  I take a sip of my Stumptown coffee.  From Portland. OR .  Also not available elsewhere nearby. Or on this coast, for that matter.

I look down at a cyclist standing nearby, and see NYC VELO socks.  Y’know who’s really into that shop?  Kaiko Shimura, who’s been interviewed here before.  My eyes rise from the socks and there she is, in the flesh.  Oh.  I say hello and introduce myself.

This is the Ride Studio Cafe experience, and it’s a new one for me.

I’m starting to get the feeling that this place is special.  I pick up a copy of Embrocation Cycling Journal– another magazine that you can’t just pick up at your local Barnes and Noble.

And yet RSC is unassuming.  […]  One person sitting at the bar near me overhears a conversation about a young cyclist heading to Europe in the summer with a tour group.  ‘Hey, I work for them,’ she says.  And so it goes.

Rob K. even mentions me in the article a few times.  But, you’ll have to read it to see what he says about me.  I’m the one in the metaphorical sweatsuit.
