When I first saw the original scraper bike video a few years ago, I could not get the song out of my head. And now that the scraper bike movement has really taken off, it would seem that my head is just going to have to deal with it. Fortunately, the movement appears to be just as tenacious as the song. The scraper bike movement has already provided a great opportunity for kids in Oakland and beyond to use their energy in positive ways, pay tribute to their friends, be mobile, have fun, express themselves, and so much more, and with all the press it’s been getting lately, one can only hope that the movement continues. After all, “My bike goes hard, don’t need no car!”
Here is a video from Streetfilms featured around the Bike for Life Ride in Oakland, with some great interviews.And last, but certainly not least. The final cut of SCRAPER BIKE from Trunk Boiz. Be sure to check out the Scraper Bike website, as well.So until next time, you know I’ll be cruisin’ on my scraper bike, on my scraper bike!
