Dear friends, more news, not quite so jolly today: Schwarzer Kanal will most probably have to move away from its home in Michaelkirchstrasse by the end of the year. Lovely landlord of the premise, „HochTief Bau“, wants to build some fancy new company headquarters on Köpenicker Strasse and guess what, use the wagon place area for storage of construction materials. That sucks! Especially cause there were negotiations with the Bezirk and the company in the past and so far it was clear that the little forest would be taken over for building. Now the company seems to have decided that they will not accept this great living space right next to their construction site, and everything has to go completely. The next months will show if anything nicer can be negotiated with HochTief, and expecially, if a good new place can be found that is not at the end of the world. Please keep your ears and eyes open about what’s going and support Schwarzer Kanal even more in this difficult time. And yes, let’s have a summer full of the best bike workshop wednesdays ever!


Hello again. Ein paar Terminchen: Wir sind seit ein paar Wochen wieder auf dem Schwarzen Kanal angekommen. Dort gibt es jetzt immer Mittwochs von 15 bis 19 die offene Werkstatt, also schaut doch mal vorbei: Michaelkirchstr. 20 in Kreuzberg. Außerdem trifft sich Bike Aid wieder, das nächsten Mal am 24.5. ab 13 Uhr, ebenfalls auf dem Kanal.

Und dann noch ein Bike Soundtrack fürs Wochenende: Kids on Bikes, ein Musikprojekt aus Florida, das hehre 77 Songs übers Fahrradfahren produzieren will. Immerhin 40 sind wohl schon geschafft. Schöne Grafik gibt’s dazu auch. Achja, und unser Anhörtipp im Player wäre „Poser“.
Macht’s gut!
